Governments all over the world have agendas to support the use of digital technologies in schools, promoting programmes known as ‘one-to-one’ (1:1) – one computer per child. A forthcoming e-book, “Digital Literacy, Technology and Social Inclusion: making sense of one-to-one computer programmes around the world” will attempt to treat this theme from many perspectives. Deadline for abstracts is 20 January 2013, with expected book release in November 2013.
This e-book is being prepared within the research project ‘Navigating with Magellan: Study on the impact of digital media in schoolchildren’ that is carried out at the University of Minho, Portugal. See full call here (pdf).
