Investigating Choices of Appropriate Devices for One-to-One Computing Initiatives in Schools Worldwide

M. Sirajul Islam and Annika Andersson
Abstract—The use of technology in schools is rapidly increasing – today most notably through the one-to-one (1:1) programs that are being implemented all around the world. Considering how new technologies are emerging fast and obsoleting others in schools, there is a need to continuously monitor and understand the features of various devices in terms of embedded technology and interaction with users. This paper therefore presents the nature of computing devices used in 1:1 computing programs in schools around the world, including investigating the benefits and drawbacks, by means of a systematic literature review and a survey conducted in some schools in Sweden. The paper also presents findings based on how the various uses of technology affect cooperation practices as well as personal exploration.

Index Terms—One-to-one computing, computer integration, constructionist learning, one laptop per child, 21st century skills.
