In this article, the author describes the successful laptop program employed at Mt. Abram High School in Strong, Maine. Through the Maine Learning Technology Initiative, the school has issued laptops to all 36,000 teachers and students in grades 7-8. This program has helped level the playing field for a student population that is 50 percent to 55 percent Title 1 (eligible for free or reduced lunch). Together with traditional classroom activities, teachers at Mt. Abram High School hope to transform education for their students.
