Results reveal that one-to-one computing programs can have a big impact on achievement if properly implemented

Schools with one-to-one computing programs have fewer discipline problems, lower dropout rates, and higher rates of college attendance than schools with a higher ratio of students to computers, according to the results of a major new study.
