Disrupting class in a one to-one laptop program for laptop institute

593 views

Published on

This presentation explains how to reexamine a one-to-one laptop program and introduce more disruptive technologies (based on the work of Clay Christensen). First a meta-analysis of what research is telling us about laptop programs is presented. Then this initial presentation inspires a discussion about where laptops programs can be improved by implementing the theory of technology as a disruptive force.
