Laptops Changing Education in Maine

“Just six months after Maine began a controversial program to provide laptop computers to every seventh grader in the state,” writes Sarah Mahoney in the New York Times, “educators are impressed by how quickly students and teachers have adapted to laptop technology.” She quotes school principal Chris Toy, “We don’t have a pencil lab or put eight pencils in the middle of the room and have kids take turns using them, Computers are tools, and when every child in every school has one, it levels the playing field.” [Mar 5] [Apple Hot News]
