Robertson County Schools, located in Middle Tennessee, is in the midst of rolling out its one-to-one (1:1) initiative. This has been a part of a greater technology overhaul, which has also included increased broadband speeds, improved Wi-Fi, and the integration of many web-based programs.

We sat down with Mr. Marshall to discuss the importance of broadband as well as the district’s successful 1:1 initiative. Warning—his touching story at the end of the video might induce some water works.
