Collected Support Materials for 1:1 iPad Implementation

Collected Support Materials for 1:1 iPad Implementation

Below contains my list-to-date of links I have collected to help promote, and hopefully one day implement, a 1:1 environment at my school.

Thank you to the countless people who share their research, work and journeys so that we can learn from their experiences and perspectives.

Obviously this is not a complete or fully comprehensive list (especially regarding workflow), so I would be grateful for further recommendation of resources.


  1. New South Wales, Australia- 1 to1 Computers in Schools: 2010 Literature Review http://www.dec.nsw.gov.au/detresources/lit_review10_TrMbcLRPRT.pdf Summary of Above: Clearly, as one-to-one laptop programs mature, improvement in student results in standardised testing is becoming evident despite the concern that these tests do not measure the 21st century skills the laptop learners are acquiring.  However, as can be clearly seen in the study of the Maine on-to-one laptop program (Silvernail & Gritter, 2007), the variation evident in these results indicates that  it is the way the laptops are used in learning that brings about the improvements in achievement.   Holcomb (2009) suggests that “it is therefore critical for schools to understand that simply providing each student with a laptop is not enough.  How teachers choose to use the laptops is very important.”  How teachers choose to use the laptops, in turn,  depends on teacher professional learning and support (Holcomb, 2009).
