This research study explores the use of one-to-one technological devices in the classroom during literacy instruction. The purpose of this study was to learn more about teacher attitudes towards using technology during this instructional time. Data were collected over a 5-week period including student artifacts or work that was created on Chromebooks during literacy instruction and semi-structured interviews with teachers. Data were analyzed to determine how the devices were used in the classroom, teacher attitudes towards using the Chromebooks, and how professional development impacted teachers’ use of the technology.
