Description
This qualitative study examined tenth graders' perceptions of the connections between their academic self-efficacy and the one-to-one laptop program in a small New Hampshire high school. The author interviewed 16 students, analyzed self-efficacy questionnaires, and reviewed student work. Using a program theory exploration, these students reported high self-efficacy in relation to academic achievement, self-regulatory learning, and computer use. The author found a connection between students' self-efficacy beliefs and their use of laptops, in the area of self-regulatory learning.
