Overview and Analysis of 1:1 Learning Initiatives in Europe
30/06/2013 - European Schoolnet
1:1 learning initiatives are equipping students of a given school, class or age group with portable devices (e.g. laptops, netbooks, tablets or smartphones) for learning purposes. Such initiatives exist already for quite some years (e.g. One Laptop Per Child) and increasingly, governments and other educational stakeholders in Europe and elsewhere are investing further in the wider roll-out of 1:1 devices. Major questions are arising however on the sustainability, impact, costs, renewal and mainstreaming of such initiatives, especially now when educational budgets are under pressure in Europe due to the economic climate.
