A Friday question for your classes

My last post on 1:1 solutions presented an interesting alternative to mini-laptops that offer great portability and durability, but many compromises in terms of functionality, especially for older students. One reader already responded,This actually sounds like a solution to the Divide that wouldn't be completely ridiculous in the States.

I agree that this would actually be a great system for a lot of classrooms, although I'm still a supporter of low-cost laptops in the right settings (regardless of the continent). My first period class (Physics) thought the idea was great, but were more in favor of iPhone-style devices for basic Internet access since they identified web access as the most important reason for 1:1 computing.

How about your classes today? What innovative solutions can they identify for getting 1:1 into the classroom? What can be cost-effective, useful, and practical in class? Better yet, how can your students and communities become involved in making these solutions a reality? Ask your students and fellow teachers and talk back below.
