If you were taking a long-awaited trip, how far in advance would you begin planning? A year, three months, one month? You’d surely want to make sure that it is enjoyable, worthwhile and that your trip is just what you had envisioned. You would plan well in advance. What if you are implementing new technologies in the classroom? How far in advance would you begin planning? Two years, one year, one month? If you are going to implement an innovation such as a one-to-one or bring your own device (BYOD). it must be done on purpose and with purpose. Indeed, some say that if you don’t plan for one to one or mobile access in your schools, it will simply happen to you. Increasing requests and student needs many necessitate it in some cases and the planning won’t have been done. This scenario is the one most would want to avoid.
