Computers in the Schools, v34 n1-2 p73-87 2017
With the widespread use and implementation of technology into PK-20 education, one-to-one laptop programs are becoming popular approaches and have been implemented all over the world in PK-20 classrooms. With the enthusiastic implementation of this kind of program, educators and researchers have started to pay attention to evaluating their effectiveness in teaching and learning. Most researchers have focused on teacher and student perceptions and attitudes toward one-to-one programs, omitting the opinions of an important stakeholder, parents. The purpose of this study was to investigate parents' perceptions toward the one-to-one laptop initiative in a Midwestern high school. The researchers used a pre-post design and collected both quantitative and qualitative data from parents and guardians. Results revealed that a majority of parents had high regard for the program. Parents also shared their perceived advantages of and concerns about the program.
