Alaska Weighing Statewide 1-to-1 Computing Program

One of the most ambitious school technology efforts in the country is being proposed far from the mainland United States, as Alaska Gov. Sean Parnell is calling for the establishment of a one student, one computing device plan to reach all of his state's far-flung school districts. If that proposal makes it into law, it would presumably bring a wave of technological investment to a state whose districts are in many ways defined by their remoteness. Many of the state's school districts are rural and extremely remote—in some cases, accessible only by plane.
