Laptop Schools (1:1) Intitiatives

Listen to this interview I did with Paul White, the Technology Director at NIST, (New International School of Thailand) in Bangkok. (Technology at NIST)
In these session we talked just about their 1:1 Tablet (laptop) scheme, his financil background also allowed him to suggest that this approch could actually save the school money.


For more information about laptop or tablet 1:1 schemes and their effectiveness in schools (including a self assessment tool) then visit www.shambles.net/pages/learning/ict/1to1laptop

TES has developed a wireless laptop mobile "lab" sometime ago but this will inevitably expand. We are considering each secondary student to have a standard laptop for all lessons - teachers are increasingly producing their teaching materials electronically.
Considerations of cost, problems of outdtaed equipment, robustness, power etc are on the agenda.

This is a long way beyond where we are at the moment but I found it interesting. Being a small school might actually make such a system easier to introduce. I found the section on establishing policies and parameters particularly useful.

Great information about how to set up and support a 1:1 programme. I am particulary interested in howw the can be used in teaching and learning with reference to collaborative work.
