Oh, good: Another Study!

Want to know something cool? OK, maybe "cool" is pushing it a little. But according to a report dated 1/12/2006 in eSchool News online, two research firms are undertaking a new study to determine the number and nature of "one-to-one computing" programs in American schools.

While I don't know how their archive system works, you can at least jump to the article here for the time being ... until they move it someplace.

The most recent data on hand pertains to the 2003-2004 school year, so it's definitely time to see what the industry has managed to accomplish on the 1:1 goal in recent (hardware-frenetic) years. No word on a due date, but count on late 2006 or early 2007 before we see meaningful data. Meanwhile, bear in mind that computing comes in various palm- and lap-friendly flavors, with entry points in the hundreds of dollars. One-to-one computing has never been more accessible. Cool, huh?

How will it shake out? Comment this blog, and let's see where the conversation leads.
