Support for 1:1 Digital Learning in Schools
What is 1 to 1 (1:1) Digital Learning?
The term 1 to 1 (or 1:1) means 1 device per student, so every student in a 1:1 school has their own device for learning. Schools choose to give every student access to their own tablet or laptop in order to ensure that they each have access to the learning and accessibility tools they will need to reach their potential and to prepare them with the skills they will need for college, work and life.
Wriggle’s team of teachers, tech experts and education solution specialists work with over 150 Irish 1:1 secondary schools. See how we can support your school’s digital learning programme below, or click to download our comprehensive guide to moving to a 1:1 device model with all the advice and support you will need.
Why schools adopt a 1:1 device model
The benefits of 1:1 digital learning are numerous including:
- Giving students access to tools to support independent learning
- Building students’ key skills to prepare them for college and worklife
- More efficient storage and easier assessment of student work
- Enhanced communication, engagement and collaboration between staff & students
- … and so much more
