1-to-1 Computing: A Measure of Success
O'Hanlon, Charlene
T.H.E. Journal, v34 n2 p26-32 Feb 2007
When Texas' Technology Immersion Project began in the spring of 2004, a grant from the US Department of Education allowed a parallel project to launch--eTxTIP--to evaluate and measure the success of the program, which equips middle school students in high-risk, high-need areas with laptops. Data is beginning to come in on several of the first 1-to-1 initiatives that were launched three or more years ago, an adequate time frame for obtaining measurable results. Just as expected, formal analysis shows that students are learning more through this new, collaborative instruction that opens the doors of communication and takes education beyond the classroom and into the community at large. Anecdotal success--accounts of positive transformations in the classroom from students, teachers, administrators, and parents--only serves to bolster the formal evaluations of these programs, which for most, were mandated when the programs were implemented.
