Resolving the practicalities of rolling out laptops for all students in US high school

Erich Tusch is the supervisor of technology for the Pascack Valley Regional High School District in the US and in a special edition of the New Jersey School Boards Association newsletter describes in detail the 10 year history of rolling out a laptop for every student in his school.

This article provides great background to the practicalities that such a scheme involves from the overall approach and design of the scheme to the details of who pays for what. The professional development programme that was put in place makes for particulaly interesting reading.
