Reaching the Tipping Point? Eight Years of MLTI Research
by James Rosso
The latest report from the University of Southern Maine documents the impact of the nation’s most comprehensive statewide 1:1 initiative.A Middle School One-to-One Laptop Program: The Maine Experience, written by David L. Silvernail and other researchers at the Maine Education Policy Research Institute (MEPRI) of the University of Southern Maine, provides an overview of many years of research about Maine’s middle school one-to-one initiative. The Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI), which has provided all 7th and 8th grade students and their teachers with their own laptop computers for 24/7 use, was originally authorized in 1999 by then-governor Angus King. By the fall of the 2002-03 school year, MLTI entered its first phase, involving over 17,000 seventh grade students and their teachers in over 240 schools throughout the state. The program expanded to grade eight the next year and has continued providing laptops to all 7th and 8th graders, accompanied by professional development for faculty, ever since.
