The 1-to-1 Stories Project

Originating in the US, the 1-to-1 Stories Project is a collection of stories and collective wisdom from educators implementing laptop and/or handheld programs. As described on their website, the mission is to bring about positive change in education that 1-to-1 promises.
This is a project of the Maine Center for Meaningful Engaged Learning (McMEL) at the University of Maine at Farmington. Mike Muir, McMEL’s director, is the editor for the 1-to-1 Stories Project.

This project has the potential to reduce the isolation of schools who are adopting personal mobile computing objectives and gives all participants a chance to share experiences. All postings are tagged under relveant headings such as 'classroom management', 'impact on learners', 'leadership', 'plagiarism', 'professional development' etc.

Recently I added included one posting about our handheld program at International School Dhaka entitled: "Aiming for a sustainable handheld program: An international persepctive"
