Seeing No Progress, Some Schools Drop Laptops - New York Times - 2 views

    Interesting article about a school right outside Richmond Va, that has decided to eliminate the use of laptops due to lack of progress.
    Interesting article. As we have been discussing several problems exist. Lack of teacher training is one. The other looks to the behavior of the students. Perhaps the laptops need to stay at school so that no one "forgets" theirs at home. Students can only use them during classtime and there is a teacher sitting at the back of the room to ensure that all students are on appropriate sites.
    Can we trust students? (I believe yes...We must trust students so they will rise to the occasion, rather than sink to lowest expectations.
    I also think if students are challenged to use computers for more than pure peer social interaction, we may be able to limit the "inappropriate" use you mention.
    So, actually, it comes back to teacher training.
    It makes my head hurt.
