Educational Outcomes and Research from 1:1 Computing Settings

The abstract:

Despite the growing interest in 1:1 computing initiatives, relatively little empirical

research has focused on the outcomes of these investments. The current special edition

of the Journal of Technology and Assessment presents four empirical studies of K–12

1:1 computing programs and one review of key themes in the conversation about 1:1

computing among advocates and critics. In this introduction to our 1:1 special edition,

we synthesize across the studies and discuss the emergent themes. Looking specifically

across these studies, we summarize evidence that participation in the 1:1 programs was

associated with increased student and teacher technology use, increased student engagement

and interest level, and modest increases in student achievement.
