The device is normally (but not always) Internet enabled and could be a desktop, laptop, netbook, hybrid, tablet, eReader, smartphone or handheld.
I’m doing loads of work at the moment around 1:1 and devices in schools at a system, state and school level.

I often start any conversations with people about 1:1 by exploring some of its great myths.
