Implementation and Effects of One-to-One Computing Initiatives: A Research Synthesis
ARTICLE

Journal of Research on Technology in Education Volume 38, Number 3, ISSN 1539-1523

Abstract

There are now a large number of initiatives designed to make laptops with wireless connectivity available to all students in schools. This paper synthesizes findings from research and evaluation studies that analyzed implementation and effects of one-to-one initiatives from a range of countries. Factors related to successful implementation reported in the research include extensive teacher professional development, access to technical support, and positive teacher attitudes toward student technology use. Outcome studies with rigorous designs are few, but those studies that did measure outcomes consistently reported positive effects on technology use, technology literacy, and writing skills. (Contains 3 tables.)
