program is one where students are given a device (whether it is a tablet, laptop or netbook) and access to online resources to support their studies. This type of initiative allows students to work a pace they feel comfortable at, as well as develop a sense of independence and self-direction. In a 1:1 program, the traditional teacher-student dynamic is transformed, giving the student a more personalized learning experience.
In addition to the device, a key element of a 1-to-1 program is broadband connectivity. When a device is used in the classroom, Internet access is a given, as it is more commonly available on school grounds. But for a third of students nationwide, Web access at home isn’t necessarily a reality. For those students, then, using this technology to master their curriculum is more challenging. But with a Kajeet SmartSpot®, a 1-to-1program is easy for a school or district to implement. The SmartSpot is simply loaned out to a student, who can then use it to access school-provided Internet connectivity through any Wi-Fi capable device. The student gets access to the resources needed for the assignments at hand and the school is able to manage what websites can be accessed and for how many hours. The integration is seamless and cost-effective, allowing the technology for school to be available on an anytime anywhere basis. Learn more
