Maine to expand its school laptop program
Posted by Sylvia Hayes on Monday, March 16, 2009
Despite the economic turmoil, Maine is expanding its program to provide laptop computers to students. Maine started its first-in-the-nation program by distributing more than 30,000 computers to each seventh- and eighth-grader in all of the state's public schools in 2002 and 2003. Now the goal is to provide a laptop to every public school student in grades 7-12 by the fall.
Key words: Maine laptop program, one-to-one computing
