1:1 Computing

In the context of education, 1 to 1 (1:1) computing refers to schools issuing each enrolled student an electronic device in order to access the Internet, digital course materials and digital textbooks.One-to-one computing offers the benefits of increasing achievement, increasing student engagement, the ability to monitor student progress and online behaviour , preparing students for tomorrow’s workplace and broadening learning beyond the classroom. For these reasons, one-to-one computing is a major part of education policy in many countries.
