Cutting Edge in Carolina: Getting One-to-One to Work Isn't Easy
McHale, Tom
Technology & Learning, v28 n9 p42 Apr 2008
Kershaw County School District in South Carolina may not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking about hotbeds of ed-tech innovation. Its student population is diverse and for the most part not wealthy: Camden High School is urban with 1,055 students, 45 percent of whom qualify for reduced lunch; Lugoff-Elgin High School is a large suburban high school with 1,482 students, with 31 percent reduced lunch; North Central High School is a small rural school (570 students), and the poorest of the three, with 62 percent of the students qualifying for the federal reduced lunch program. As the district looked to upgrade its antiquated computer hardware, then-Superintendent Herbert Berg presented one-to-one as a solution. And thus the iCan Project began. This article describes how Kershaw County School District was able to implement this iCan project.
