Schools across the country are experimenting with one-to-one laptop learning programs. The author's research team has studied 10 such schools--seven in California and three in Maine--and has found that laptop programs have great potential to help schools prepare students for the future. In this article, Warschauer warns that one-to-one laptop programs are not likely to immediately raise test scores, turn around troubled schools, or erase achievement gaps. But there are excellent reasons to start a laptop program, he asserts: Such programs promote 21st century learning skills; increase student engagement, improve student writing, promote deeper learning, and make it easier to integrate technology with instruction. Warschauer offers advice to schools that decide to implement a laptop program, including the following: put education goals first; remember total cost of ownership; practice creative financing; keep students on task; go slowly; and plan for evaluation.
