Discussion: Student to computer ratios

From 1/7/04 minutes: “It was suggested that we might reframe our state plan targets for technology use today. For example, does the plan imply desktop PC? What about differentiated technology for different grade levels and types of content? The council agreed to focus on the One-to-One Concept at the next council meeting to explore this idea further.”
