Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this correlational, experimental quasi-design study was to investigate the effect of one-to-one laptop digital innovation on fifth-grade students. The intent of the research was to analyze and determine the effects of one-to-one classroom environment on student achievement and engagement, as well as teachers’ attitudes towards digital integration. Data collection included standardized test, aimsweb, Dreambox Learning, and semester scores. Quantitative data revealed a significant difference in student achievement between a one-to-one engaging, innovative environment and a classroom with limited technology resources. Students’ achievement and growth in math enhanced when enriched with digital programs via laptop technology. School districts will benefit from research results on the effect of one-to-one learning environments on student engagement and achievement.
