Time to prepare for 1-1

OLPC in India

Playing with the Eee pc has brought home to me the fact that 1-1 (one device per pupil) is coming soon. I don't have to do anything to make it happen. It is inevitable.

I have therefore decided to focus my energies on preparing for 1-1. In other words, I am going to be working on lesson plans that assume 1-1 in my classroom, starting with the topics that I'll be teaching on Monday (iterative schemes for Advanced Higher, surds for credit etc).

Some time soon, someone is going to ask "where should we start the roll-out of 1-1?" and I want to be so ready that they couldn't possibly choose anywhere else :-)

I'll put my work online, cc wiki, but I'll hold off publishing the url until I've got at least a couple of ideas written down.
