Excerpt from Why schools must move beyond one-to-one computing — from novemberlearning.com by Alan November (emphasis DSC)

Let’s drop the phrase “one-to-one” and refer instead to “one-to- world.”

This simple, one-word change takes us beyond the focus on the boxes and wires and alludes to why we are making the investment in the first place. The planning considerations now evolve from questions about technical capacity to a vision of limitless opportunities for learning. This change also has enormous implications for the design of staff development. As soon as you shift from “one- to-one” to “one-to-world,” it changes the focus of staff development from technical training to understanding how to design assignments that are more empowering—and engage students in a learning community with 24-hour support.
