The utilization of one-to-one computing (each students is equipped with a personal device) has slowly started to become available into educational contexts in developing countries. One crucial challenge in relation to the understanding and developing of one-to-one computing related learning and teaching practices in developing educational contexts is the lack of context-situated educational research on the topic. This study participated in addressing the lacks in educational research by exploring the pedagogical strategies utilized in three rural schools in Colombia. The results consist of rich descriptions of teachers’ pedagogical approaches. The results show high empowerment in teachers’ efforts in developing and contextualizing one-to-one related pedagogical approaches into their teaching. Many of the teachers’ approaches were found to be well aligned with a number of constructivist and student-centered pedagogical approaches. This study adds important new educational results to the ongoing scientific discussion about education with one-to- one computing.
