What is 1:1 or one-to-one computing?

Put simply, one-to-one computing just means a device for every student.

A 1:1 programme allows you to move technology out of the traditional ICT suite and directly into the hands of each individual learner so they’re empowered to achieve more.

Wherever they’re learning and whatever the lesson, a device per pupil is a real enabler for improved learning outcomes. It ignites creativity, encourages independent thinking and allows personalised learning experiences that support each individual student’s needs.

There are so many reasons to go 1:1. Here are just a few.

For students and parents


Improved engagement

Why confine tech use to the ICT suite? Bring mobile devices into any lesson to help maximise student engagement across the curriculum.

Personalised learning - Ideal for supporting learners with SEND

Easily adapt the learning experience to suit each student’s style. Use the in-built accessibility features of modern devices to make learning more inclusive for those with special educational needs or disabilities including language, sight, hearing, cognitive or physical special needs.

Access everything

Class work, homework or on a school trip - students can access their learning from anywhere. With a 1:1 programme and the right cloud-based learning platform in place, everything they need can be neatly organised and accessible from one place, from anywhere.

Work ready

Prepare students now for a world of work that revolves around device use and collaboration applications.

Better insight for parents

When the device comes home, parents and guardians have better visibility of what their child has been working on. Why wait until parent’s evening to update them on progress?

For teachers


Break free from the traditional format

Don’t be restrained to the classroom. Going 1:1 opens a whole host of learning options and locations.

Bring learning to life

Leverage a world of multimedia resources to help bring learning to life. Give learners options to consume information and acquire knowledge in a way that best suits their individual learning style.

Less admin, more time

Save time on everything from lesson planning to marking work. With the right apps, teachers can do it all digitally for a better work life balance and more time to teach.

Great visibility of progress

Use apps to easily assign work and track your learners’ progress, both in and out of the classroom. Teachers can focus their support when and where learners need it.

Meaningful feedback

Use audio and video notes to fly through marking. It’s a quick way to give richer, more meaningful feedback to students.

For school leaders


Learning continuity

With a device for every pupil, learning can happen anywhere. Snow days, exclusion or even a pandemic lockdown needn’t interrupt their education.

Level the playing field

Everyone gets access to the same learning experience regardless of family circumstances, both in school and at home.

Empower teachers and students to achieve more

Improve learning outcomes by giving teachers tools that help students collaborate, create, contribute in class and develop essential skills for the future.

Affordable

With trade-in schemes to help reduce the cost of purchase and options to move up-front capital costs to regular OPEX payments (Operational Expenditure), investing in 1:1 can be very affordable. Consider parental contribution too as an alternative.

A wise investment with eco-creds

With everything happening in the cloud, you can reduce the need for physical "on-premises" server insfrastructure and all the management and energy costs that go with it. Plus, save on the cost of physical resources like photocopied workbooks and reinvest the admin time they take to prepare into other projects. These factors combined help to make your campus a little greener.
