They carry silver briefcases rather than the standard backpack. These are Peck’s seventh- and eighthgraders, who are given laptops to use 24/7 for all their schoolwork. Just a few minutes ago, many of them were in the “before school” program—laptops open—studying, printing, and listening to music. Look around the walls of Peck, and you might spot a wireless access device, blinking intermittently, sending a signal for faculty and student laptops. These access points provide a little 21stcentury razzle-dazzle to the staid, 19th-century wood paneling.
Educators need to be committed to the success of the overall program and do their part to make it happen. This commitment means believing in the results even though challenges will arise and time-honored habits and traditions will change. To be successful, all stakeholders must be equally committed to providing their piece of the laptop puzzle: hardware, software, network infrastructure, logistics, professional development, and classroom implementation. Schools and districts moving ahead with a laptop initiative should consider how they’re structuring their programs to facilitate each of these crucial elements.
In this way, laptops can be secured when not in use. Teachers check the laptops frequently to be sure they’re all locked in place; if not, they’re “kidnapped” and brought to the Upper School office. Students face disciplinary action if they fail to secure their laptops properly. Cubbies have been such an effective addition to the seventh- and eighth-grade building that Peck’s Academic Link building was designed to have cubbies as well. Even though the CT building for seventh- and eighth-graders was designed for laptops, it wasn’t originally designed for a wireless network.
