Over the last decade, more and more public and private stakeholders, in developed and developing
countries, have been supporting 1:1 initiatives in education (i.e. every child receives her/his own personal
computing device). These 1:1 initiatives represent a qualitative move forward from previous educational
experiences with ICT, inasmuch as every child is equipped with ubiquitous access to a personal device
(usually laptops, netbooks or handhelds). The paper tries to systematise the most salient evidence about 1:1
initiatives in education drawing on official websites, program evaluations and academic meta-reviews.
Information is provided about the policy expectations, program designs and the challenges for an effective
implementation of 1:1 initiatives in education. Given the limited body of evidence, the paper raises
unsolved questions about the cost-effectiveness and educational impacts of 1:1 computing in education.
