Summary Increasingly on the agendas of governments and educational leaders is an impetus to increase the number of computing devices in schools across Australia. There is much expected, promised and hoped for in developing 1:1 eLearning pedagogies, or ubiquitous approaches in ICTs. In 2008, the Intel Classmate PC 1:1 eLearning Project investigated the effects on classroom practices which arose from the provision of low-cost mobile learning devices for each student to use in a collaborative learning environment. The overall goal of the research was to provide evidence and understanding about the impact of 1:1 eLearning on student/teacher and student/student interactions, pedagogical and curriculum practices and student learning. This presentation draws from six primary school case studies, across three States of Australia. Significant successes and challenges were experienced across the diverse sites of these studies. Through these schools’ participation in this pilot study, five key factors have been identified as contributing to, or hindering the adoption and implementation of the devices. These included: ICT infrastructure, connectivity and hardware; Teacher attributes; Pedagogical and curriculum approaches; Teacher professional knowledge, and; School leadership.
