‘It’s one of the most compelling school-change interventions we have seen in decades, but it isn’t about 1-to-1 devices – it’s about what students do when they have full-time access to powerful tools, the same tools found in offices and on the desks of professionals in all fields.’ … and yes, above all there is growing evidence that 1-to-1 programs offer teachers a unique pedagogical medium for enhancing learning within their classrooms.
