Frazier, Denise K.; Trekles, Anastasia M.; Spores, John M. – Computers in the Schools, 2019
Technology initiatives bring fear and excitement for students and educators, waning over time as devices lose their novelty, yet research related to long-term 1:1 adoption is lacking. The purpose of this research was to follow up with one Midwestern elementary school during its second year of iPad adoption. A "Qualtrics" survey was used…

Kale, Ugur; Akcaoglu, Mete; Cullen, Theresa; Goh, Debbie – Computers in the Schools, 2018
This study attempts to determine whether teachers' access to computational thinking (CT) and CT technologies varies by rurality (rural versus urban) of the school county and grade level taught (primary versus secondary). A total of 81 teachers from West Virginia, Georgia, and Oklahoma participated in this survey study. Overall, teachers found CT…

Kirkpatrick, Lori; Brown, Heather M.; Searle, Michelle; Smyth, Rachael E.; Ready, Emily A.; Kennedy, Kathleen – Computers in the Schools, 2018
The goal of this study was to add to the existing literature by examining the effect of 1:1 iPad integration on the achievement of Canadian Grade 7 students. The school board we worked with provided an iPad to each Grade 7 student in the district to keep for the remainder of their time in the district. We examined the impact of the iPads on…

Blau, Ina; Grinberg, Ronen; Shamir-Inbal, Tamar – Computers in the Schools, 2018
This study examines the meaning attributed to the contribution of technology to pedagogical practices from the perspective of school ICT leaders. While previous studies use metaphors for bottom-up exploration, this study employs an innovative combination of bottom-up and top-down metaphor analysis based on two frameworks: (a) metaphors of general…

Petko, Dominik; Prasse, Doreen; Cantieni, Andrea – Computers in the Schools, 2018
Decades of research have shown that technological change in schools depends on multiple interrelated factors. Structural equation models explaining the interplay of factors often suffer from high complexity and low coherence. To reduce complexity, a more robust structural equation model was built with data from a survey of 349 Swiss primary school…

Lu, Ya-Huei; Ottenbreit-Leftwich, Anne T.; Ding, Ai-Chu; Glazewski, Krista – Computers in the Schools, 2017
Although many elementary schools have adopted one-to-one programs, we still lack information on how teachers integrate iPads or other tablets into their daily instruction, especially in early childhood settings. The purpose of this case study was to present how four experienced iPad-using early childhood teachers integrated one-to-one iPads into…
