Arguments Pro and ConEdit

Arguments in favor of One-to-One Computing

Having a laptop in the hands of a student, used as a digital assistant (the term borrowed from Prakash Nair http://www.designshare.com/Research/Nair/Laptop_Classrooms.htm for more information, has been shown in studies from the State of Maine, the State of Michigan, Beaufort Independent School District, and Athens Academy to result in more engaged students and teachers creating enriched curriculum. There is also evidence that school attendance improves and discipline issues decline. Contrary to some discussions, there has also been improved test scores in English in some cases and Math in other cases.
