I teach computers in an elem. school. I have been hearing a lot of great things about eMints classrooms in our state that use computers in a reg. classroom (2students per one computer). Another computer teacher in our dist. who works with these classrooms in her school said it was the way the teachers were teaching (they had 74 hours of training) and not the computers that were making such a difference in our state test scores (MAP)
Here is a link that talks a little about this form of teaching/learning:

What are your opinions and do you use this in your classroom? I always asked questions in my class (when I taught 1st and 2nd) but not like this.
