Should we be going to a 1:1 arrangement in our schools?

1:1? (Via 2 Cents Worth.) David Warlick: “it won’t work in a 20th century classroom.” This is not to say it won’t work. Warlick suggests that issues of tech support and professional development need to be addressed… but, surprisingly, given the quote above, he doesn’t really get into how the classroom would have to change to be a “21st century classroom”, though he certainly does elsewhere in 2 Cents Worth. I appreciated the optimistic (and pragmatic) final question: “What stories do you go out and tell your community to convince them that being ready for their future requires that children have convenient access to networked digital information?”

Perhaps I need a 1:1 category for these referrals? I suppose this topic will only get more important.
