The purpose of this exploratory mixed methods study was to investigate the successes and difficulties of a 1:1 Chromebook implementation in a suburban high school. The research questions that arose were as follows: What were the intentions and goals of the 1:1 roll-out? How would administrators, teachers, counselors, and informational technology workers describe the success of their 1:1 roll-out at the end of its first year, taking into account deployment and infrastructure, leadership and teaching, learning, and assessment? What strengths and weaknesses would stakeholders identify for their 1:1 roll-out, upon reflection? Part 1 of the study entailed a 17 question survey of teachers, counselors, and a paraprofessional. Part 2 of the study involved interviews with teachers, counselors, administrators, and an information technology professional. The challenges identified included technical issues with computers and charging. The successes included better communication between teachers and students.
