Researchers examine the educational and social effects of making one laptop per child available in selected classrooms, and the impact on student outcomes

Students in Birmingham City Schools, Ala., are building their technological skills and interests while engaging in collaborative learning thanks to XO laptop computers. XO computers are rugged, low-cost, low-power laptops that have become familiar to people around the world through the One Laptop Per Child project. In Birmingham, the laptops were distributed by the local government to help reduce a "digital divide" separating Birmingham students from those in more affluent areas in terms of available technology and the opportunity to become proficient in its use.
