To maximize learning value from 1-to-1 programs in schools, computing devices need to be personal, portable and multifunctional. The increased access provided by 1-to-1 devices creates great opportunities for school-librarians to support their school technology directions and to implement 21st century information literacy and reading promotion programs. The key factor in the success of 1-to-1 programs is teacher implementation of appropriate pedagogies. Teacher-librarians have the chance to provide leadership in pedagogies that most effectively utilize these devices to improve learning outcomes.
