A one-to-one computing environment has been the dream for many since the reality of providing personal computers to students was realized. However, tight budgets and limited resources have largely prevented K12 schools and higher education institutions from being able to provide computing devices for every student. Also, software, in many cases makes it challenging to maintain standards that are economical in nature. The implication of not being able to provide students with 21st century tools is critical in a global economy.

Luckily, the concept of the 1:1 environment is changing to include both district-provided devices as well as student-provided devices. This trend is being driven by affordability, expectations from a digitally native user base, digital content availability, and the need to reach students through tools they understand.
