Abstract: Laptops have been shown to improve 21st century skills such as life and career skills, learning and innovation skills, and group collaboration, but how does this ever-present technology affect the thinking of today’s “screenager?” Through an analysis of focus groups and surveys with students in 1:1 initiatives across North Carolina, researchers have discovered multiple changes in learning when students have access to laptops. The study included eight Early College (EC) high schools and ten traditional high schools, with a total across the eighteen schools of approximately 9,500 students and 600 school staff.
