A proposed high-tech overhaul of schools in Ludlow, Mass., includes plans for all high-school students to have access to a Chromebook personal computer that they would share with one other student, says Superintendent Todd Gazda. The devices cost about $250 each, and Gazda said the initiative is a cost-effective way for the district to meet its goals. "In past years there's been a big push for one to one. And I'm not convinced we need to go to one to one because so many of our students have their own devices," he said.
