In the fall of 2012, Mason County High School implemented a 1:1 iPad program which placed the devices into the hands of every teacher and student. Researchers examined data from student and teacher interviews, program maintenance data and instructional change examples to answer the question, "Did it work?" With digital and blended learning design theory being at the forefront of the instructional design research field right now, this article provides an in-depth look at an existing environment of digital access. This investigation represents a unique look beyond merely the implementation of such systems (short-term analysis) and evaluates a sample program over the last 4 years (long-term analysis). While there was evidence of success with the implementation and subsequent rollout of the device program, this study was conducted to investigate the long-term effect of the devices on instruction and school change.
