This paper describes a project providing school children with 24/7 access to laptop computer technology in a small rural school community in western Kansas. Based upon the visionary leadership of school and community figures, this collaborative venture incorporates creative approaches to financing the project, a focus on actively changing approaches to pedagogy and the learning process, and an analysis of the impact of the project upon the school community. Key features of the project incorporate a focus on educational leadership; community partnerships; anytime, anywhere learning; the digital divide in rural communities; 24/7 access to computers; and constructivist learning in a technology dependent learning environment.
