1. Take your time. Take the time to envision your ideal program and how it resonates with your school’s mission and goals. Engage teachers early on in conversations that gauge their readiness and address their fears.

3. Partner with parents. Spend time thinking about how you will communicate with families and make sure you create the channels you will need to keep them informed and engaged.

4. Find great apps. Find the best apps to use in the classroom and spend time creating meaningful classroom activities and assessments that leverage those apps.

5. Take your time. Adequate professional development workshop time is key, as well as taking the time to teach students about online safety and digital citizenship.
