Many countries, regions and education districts in the world have experimented with models of one-device-perstudent as an enabler of new or effective pedagogies supported by mobile technologies.

This paper describes a research programme that demonstrates how to make successful research innovations count in practice and that delineates what types of educational R&D involving scaling need to take place to make the critical link to impacting practice. We do this in the context of one such curricular innovation in a Singapore school that moves through the various phases to where the innovation is becoming an integral part of routine classroom practices.
