At Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School (LGF) in Boston, 1:1 eLearning and an innovative approach to technology access at home are increasing opportunity for children from a tough Boston neighborhood. Following best practices for technology adoption laid out in the K-12 Computing Blueprint, LGF is using 1:1 eLearning to deliver individualized instruction, increase achievement, and develop 21st century skills. In addition, hundreds of LGF families each year receive 25 hours of technology training and are able to purchase an inexpensive mobile PC and Internet connectivity, thus bridging the digital divide at home.
