An Examination of One-to-One Computing in the Middle School: Does Increased Access Bring about Increased Student Engagement?
Journal of Educational Computing Research Volume 42, Number 4, ISSN 0735-6331
This study explores configurations of laptop use in a one-to-one environment. Guided by methodologies of the Concerns-Based Adoption Model of change, an Innovation Configuration Map (description of the multiple ways an innovation is implemented) of a 1:1 laptop program at a middle school was developed and analyzed. Three distinct configurations showed a range in fidelity of laptop integration at the school. A second finding showed a range of off-task behaviors as part of each configuration. We chose to more deeply explore if a relationship between the individual configurations and student off-task behaviors existed. We found that increased access to laptop computers does not always equate to increased student engagement. Implications of this study extend to teachers, school administrators, and teacher educators.
