The media and technologies children love and use avidly every day at home need to be available in school – not just for greater engagement in the classroom (though that is likely to happen), but also so children can learn how to function effectively in the workplaces and communities of a digital age. They need the opportunities to practise the citizenship and literacies of digital environments as part of their F–12 education: they need schools outfitted with digital media and technologies. 

Managing the digital gadgets, gizmos and games that kids already own is often a challenge, and many parents find that a school-issued 1-to-1 device further disrupts an area in which there are already conflicts. 1-to-1 devices blur the lines between school and home, between work and play, between tool and toy. Many parents could use some help in setting boundaries. Topics discussed in 1-to-1 at Home include 

  • parental control, filtering and monitoring software;
  • downloading media;
  • video sites;
  • social networks
  • video games;
  • video, voice and text chatting; and
  • ergonomics and sleep. 

Written from the perspective of a family therapist who works to help families get to the heart of complicated matters, this guidebook addresses the home side of 1-to-1 programs. 1-to-1 at Home: A Parent’s Guide to School-Issued Laptops and Tablets provides the perspectives of other adults – educators and parents – who have addressed similar challenges.
