Irving ISD has been issuing 1:1 (one laptop per child) for the past seven years. All of our high school students receive a laptop thanks to a community funded bond support to make this a reality. The belief is in the ever flat world one must evolve or perish. However, the prohibitive cost of laptops limit our ability to expand these into elementary and middle schools. So, a pilot would allow us to experiment with these units in different settings to see the potential impact.
