“While not having been able to completely solve this puzzle yet Uruguay’s experiences do point to what a suitable solution could look like:

 

- Training that takes place before the laptops are handed out combined with in-service training and in-classroom support
- Training components that take place in both physical and virtual environments
- Training that is really focused on how to use the laptop for learning rather than spending too much time on simply learning how to use a particular application
- Creating suitable spaces for teachers to exchange ideas, experiences, and materials they made while using the laptops
- Inclusion of training of methods and abilities required for using connected digital tools in schools in the education of future generations of teachers”
