      • 1:1 refers to the current trend where low-cost computer devices , ranging from mobiles and handhelds to laptops or netbooks, have gained ground.
      • Typically, these devises are connected to the internet and owned by the learner.
      • 1:1 indicates the ration of items per user, i.e. one netbook per learner.
      • One-to-one (1:1) computing is a new phenomena in educational setting!
