Entitled the Maine Learning Technology Initiative (MLTI), the initial phase of the MLTI (2002-2004) provided all 7th and 8th grade students and their teachers with laptop computers, and provided schools and teachers technical assistance and professional development for integrating laptop technology into their curriculum and instruction. This report presents some of the most salient evidence from the Phase One evaluation of MLTI. It presents evidence on both the use and impacts of the laptop technology on teachers and students. Additional analyses of more specific impacts will be released in subsequent reports and research briefs.
