Learning in a 1-to-1 environment is active and student centred and opens up new possibilities.
Each learner has access to a portable, networked digital device, such as a notebook or tablet that connects each learner with their teacher and other learners or experts, with real-world contexts for learning, multimedia resources, software for learning and online tools and applications.
Now that the National Secondary Schools Computer Fund and other infrastructure funding have ended many schools question how and why they would sustain 1-to-1 learning in their schools. There’s an increasingly expanding range of devices to choose from with different models of provision including school supplied, bring your own device and co-contribution options, and schools are making these decisions whilst trying to address the personal learning needs of students and the expectations of parents.
Sustaining a 1-to-1 Program in a School
Implementing and sustaining a 1-to-1 program for students in a school presents both challenges and opportunities. The Sustaining a 1-to-1 Program in a School provides advice on what schools need to consider to make informed decisions about 1-to-1 program implementation by:
- presenting the options available to ensure students have access to digital technologies;
- demonstrating the learning and teaching benefits that 1-to-1 has for students, parents and the school community;
- outlining the key elements to consider when planning, implementing and sustaining your school’s 1-to-1 program; and
- sharing practices from schools across Victoria.
