One Laptop per Child (OLPC)
http://www.laptopgiving.org/en/index.php
The mission of One Laptop per Child (OLPC) is to empower the children of developing countries to learn by providing one connected laptop to every school-age child. In order to accomplish our goal, we need people who believe in what we’re doing and want to help make education for the world’s children a priority, not a privilege.

The Laptop Institute (conference)
http://www.laptopinstitute.com
The Laptop Institute (July 13-15, 2008) is an international think tank for schools using or considering laptops or tablets as tools for learning. Created and hosted by Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, Tennessee, the Laptop Institute offers over 80 breakout sessions – from hands-on events to lectures, discussions and networking. Conference sessions meet the needs of educators, technology integrationists, technology support personnel and administration. In 2006, over 460 attendees from 36 states and 8 countries attended. Over half those attending are K-12 teachers who collaborate with peers and learn tips for using laptops and tablets in their own classrooms.

Selling the Dream of 1:1 Computing A Leadership Primer
Schools around the world are at long-last embracing the implementation of 1:1 computing. However, many of the best intentions are stymied by a lack of leadership, narrow vision and an inability to communicate ambitious goals that justify the investment to cautious stakeholders.
The following is a series of answers often provided to support 1:1 computing and suggestions for how the same leader might inspire the hearts and minds of teachers, parents and community members.

Laptops and Learning Resources
"Gary Stager is one of the true pioneers of the 1:1 laptop movement. His work in this area includes looking beyond the laptops to their effective application by students as true tools for learning. Rather than seeing 1:1 computing as a vehicle for replicating older educational models, Gary sees it as a chance to transform educational practice in ways that truly prepare young people for lifelong learning."

Affording 1:1
Many large-scale initiatives are in the position of having to request funding every few years, which can be a real nail-biter. The sooner you can fold all your laptop or tablet funding into yearly capital expenditures the better. Michigan, Maine, and West Virginia have all been in the position of renegotiating funding after their initial outlays, and so far all three have successfully continued their programs.

The 411 on One-to-One Computing
http://www.education-world.com/a_tech/tech/tech194.shtml
The 411 on One-to-One Computing
One-to-one computing is happening now! In K-12 classrooms across the United States, laptops, handhelds, and tablet PCs are replacing pens and pencils as the accepted "tools of the trade" for students. You already might teach in a classroom that provides a computer device for each student's use. If you don't yet, however, with K-12 technology use predicted to continue to rise in the years ahead, the trend toward one-to-one computing is sure to impact your classroom in the not-so-distant future.

The OLPC Wiki (One Laptop Per Child)
This is the wiki for the One Laptop per Child association. The mission of this non-profit association is to develop a low-cost laptop—the "$100 Laptop"—a technology that could revolutionize how we educate the world's children. Our goal is to provide children around the world with new opportunities to explore, experiment, and express themselves.
Why do children in developing nations need laptops? Laptops are both a window and a tool: a window into the world and a tool with which to think. They are a wonderful way for all children to learn learning through independent interaction and exploration.

What is the 1:1 Student Computing Initiative
http://www.asu.edu/1to1/
What is the 1:1 Student Computing Initiative at the Downtown Phoenix Campus?
Technology is at the center of ASU's vision of the New American University, and 1:1 computing is part of the technology strategy for the future.
In a 1:1 computing environment, students have a mobile computer and wireless access to ASU resources and the Internet. On a 1:1-enabled campus like that of Downtown Phoenix, students have the opportunity to be more engaged in real-world, relevant learning activities and provided with the tools to use throughout their careers.
