Seamlessly Available Tools and ResourcesAs previously discussed, sharing computers does not permit spontaneous and continual access to resources.
From our 1:1 computing research pilot last year, the teachers and students involved found that there was no down time during their classes. When the teacher was working with small groups or individual students, the rest of the class was highly productive in using their 1:1 computers to finish other work. This again would promote independent learning and personal responsibility.
Current events information becomes easily accessed to influence daily instruction
Software metering will permit all students to use software that was previously targeted to special classes.
1:1 computing permits teachers to deliver differentiated instruction to students with differing needs. Students can be provided with tools to accommodate physical and learning challenges.
