1 to 1 in a Nutshell

Mark Warschauer:

Laptops make a good school better, but they don't make a bad school good.

They make a good school better by facilitating more and higher quality writing, allowing the practice and development of 21st century learning skills, encouraging high student motivation and engagement, and assisting effective integration of technology in teaching and learning. (They don't make a bad school good, because if teachers and students are invested in wasting time rather than learning, an Internet-connected computer provides ample opportunities for doing so!)

Also, good stuff about the positive reception given to Linux-based netbooks.
