With the advance of technology, the price drop and the increasing reliance of personal computers showed possibilities on transforming our current education. As mentioned in Bloom's 2-sigma problem (Bloom, 1984), one-to-one classroom learning proved a significant learning outcome compared to the conventional. Therefore, with the assist of technology, applying 1:1 learning in the regular practice might be the ultimate goal for the educational transform. In this study, we explored the experiences and showed encountered problems for 1:1 learning in Taiwan. The experience was categorized into users and technology, followed by the analysis of criteria that based on empirical observations. As a result, the observation provided a guideline for the technology readiness, which consisted of the perception of users (teachers & administrators, students & parents) and the stability of pedagogical and hardware integration (pedagogy/software and devices). The result of this study also suggested that further attention should be addressed on the hardware infrastructure and the teacher's professional training, because there were over 50% of encountered problems that were mainly the problems for stability of computer hardware (54.41%). Most problems encountered by teachers & administrators could be solved by effective professional trainings and flexible school assessments (31.00%). Nevertheless, neither students nor parents showed a high participation ratio in this study (14.59%).
