Abstract

Laptop computers and Type II applications can provide powerful tools for elementary classrooms, especially if they are combined with authentic instruction. This article provides information and lessons learned from a laptop initiative in an urban elementary school. The goal of the initiative was to develop lesson plans and document techniques that could be used to engage students in higher level thinking skills. Sample lessons are included to provide details related to the teacher's role, hardware, software, and student outcomes.
