Information Management

  • Students face a huge information integration/organization/management task.
  • Computers are the most powerful tool available for working with information. Therefore, students should be provided with computers to help them with the information management tasks they face.
  • This reasoning becomes especially compelling with regard to movies, animations, and simulations. These dynamic ways of presenting information can be very effective mediums for learning, but are not usable anytime and anywhere without a one-to-one computing infrastructure.
  • Computers don't replace existing tools like paper, writing implements, and calculators -- computers supplement them. Computers alone don't solve the information management tasks students face. They are one part of the whole milieu of student development, support, and molding forces that exist in schools.

Why Laptops?


  • This is seen in practice at schools with laptop programs such as ours through greatly eased communication between teachers and students, between students and students, and between students and families.
  • With a one-to-one computing infrastructure in place, faculty can easily distribute any information that can be put into a digital form. Assignment sheets, syllabi, useful Web links, and accumulated digital course materials become just a click away.
  • Students can more easily get their work to faculty via the network. Students can also collaborate more easily with each other because of the facilitated communications provided by their networked computers and various network servers.
  • Finally, students can be in touch with friends and family outside the school environment in ways that can make many students feel less isolated.

Digital Manipulation

  • Computers can provide virtual playgrounds, or what some prefer to call "digital manipulatives," for an increasing number of knowledge domains. By virtual playgrounds I mean programs that allow for the playful (or at least relatively painless) manipulation of the information of a knowledge domain. For an activity to be playful there must be no significant cost to experimenting.
