The Views and Attitudes of Students Participating in a One-to-One Laptop Initiative in Greece
Spanos, Dimitris; Sofos, Alivisos
Education and Information Technologies, v20 n3 p519-535 Sep 2015
Students having participated in a one-to-one laptop initiative, indicate they have higher motivation, greater interest at school (Bebell and Kay 2010) and feel more organised (McKeeman 2008). This research focuses on the views and attitudes of the students who participated in the first such initiative in Greece. The differences in the views of boys and girls are also examined. The students completed a questionnaire with 15 Likert style statements and two open questions twice: at the beginning and at the end of the school year 2010-2011. From the students' responses, it can be concluded that students like having the laptop at school: they go there with greater pleasure, they consider the classes more enjoyable but they are bothered with the technical problems. For gender differences, boys are more adaptable, whereas girls appreciate more the learning possibilities of the laptop.
