Making the Most of a 1:1 Laptop Initiative
Posted by: Justina Spencer
Grand Prairie Independent School District wasn't taking any chances with its 1:1 laptop initiative. Having read the statistics and heard the feedback from districts whose own 1:1 investments had yet to live up to expectations, this Grand Prairie, TX-based district incorporated an additional element into its project by also implementing a digital learning platform designed to help teachers maximize laptop use in the classroom.

"We decided to do it all at once," said Alisha Crumley, principal at Whitt Elementary School, one of the district's first institutions to implement 1:1. She said the initiative came after the school realized that to best engage students would require a high-tech approach facilitated by individual laptops for every child. "Our students spend a lot of their days using computers, iPods, and other devices," said Crumley. "They are the digital generation."
