Core-Beliefs for Technology Rollouts

Ever wonder what's the best way to do a technology Rollout???

For the last 7 years I have been a site EdTech for my school, Valencia Middle School, in Los Lunas, NM. Over the course of this time I have worked with my site and district teams to create a set of procedures that has made our technology distribution to students (rollout) run smoothly with minimal to no difficulties.

From my experiences I have created some basic guidelines that our site follows as we plan for the upcoming school year.  

If you try any of these ideas, I'd love to hear how it worked out at your site. What other suggestions to you have? What works best for your site?

I love those core beliefs! I think another one for me is documentation. We have a checkout sheet that we mark off what a student receives, but then we also have them sign next to their name stating that they received those devices/accessories. That way at the end of the year, they can’t say “I never got a charger!”

These beliefs are simple and easy for any school to follow. I love the idea of not rushing into having to have those devices setup and ready the first couple days of school. Get to know your students, relationships first! When students have a good relationship and respect towards you they are more likely to respect the devices or tools that go along with their class or instruction.

If you have EdTech specialists don't be afraid to ask for their support. Most likely these support people are eager and want to be there for the rollout to see students get their device, login to their account and make sure all is working to be successful all year long. This will save you lots of work order stress throughout the year as they can catch things that may not look right and get them fixed right away.
