Overview: This study investigated teacher and student uses of tablet laptop computers in a one-to-one initiative on their campus. Participants were fifth grade through eighth grade students and their teachers. Technology integration that was made available through the campus initiative was higher than initially expected. Student- teacher, and student-student collaboration was higher than expected. Teacher interviews underscored the accessibility of the technology allowed for remarkable moments of teaching. These findings, and several others, strongly support the effectiveness of a one-to-one laptop/tablet initiative in a middle school in the southwestern portion of the United States. This presentation will target college of education professors that prepare preservice teachers. In addition, this presentation would be of interest to middle school and high school administrators.
