3 District Picks
This fall, many districts and independent schools across the country have made the move to one-to-one. Here’s a round-up of their technology picks.
Central USD, Fresno, CA
This September, each of 900 teachers and staff received an Asus Tablet. Next year, the district’s 15,000 students will have their own handheld device, if all goes according to plan. The devices will replace textbooks.
Roanoke County Public Schools, VA
The district is expanding its 1-to-1 laptop initiative that they first began ten years ago to reach 6,000 high school students across five schools, and provide laptops to 1,600 instructional staff members.
Flagler County Public Schools, FL
Over the past month, 3900 laptops have been distributed to Flagler county high school students and staff in what has been a smooth transition to one-to-one learning.

When educators look back on 2013–2014, likely we will see it as the year that the one-to-one classroom environment became just a regular classroom. No longer is a school in which each student has access to a tech device for learning a novelty. Districts and independent schools, if they are not currently rolling out a one-to-one initiative, are racing to put together a plan for next year.It’s an important decision and a costly one, which is why it’s so important for schools to ask the right questions about how their students can best accomplish their learning goals. Laptops and tablets both have advantages, but which one is right for you school? This infographic lays out the pros and cons of each device and the questions you need to consider before you make the move to one-to-one.
