Description

In the past few years, the common trend for public schools is to move to a 1:1 technology approach in the classroom. Students are given a device (e.g., laptop, Chromebook, iPad) their freshmen year and are instructed to use them for their work in school for 4 years. This paper delves into the effects of this approach and weighs whether it is worth the change it brings. “Although the content may not change, the technology enables the use of innovative and engaging instructional approaches” (Storz & Hoffman, 2013, p. 3). This change not only affects the students, but the teachers as well. Students need to be prepared for the ever-changing modern world of technology. It is the duty of school and its educators to prepare these students for this world. Is the 1:1 approach the best way to do this?
