A small, high school in Vail, Colorado “will become the state’s first all-wireless, all-laptop public school this fall.”
The 350 students at the school will not have traditional textbooks. Instead, they will use electronic and online articles as part of more traditional teacher lesson plans.
The laptops cost $850 each.
I wonder if teachers will develop courses independent of textbooks, which is a lot of work, or send students to the old textbook’s web site. I wonder too what will happen when a student says, “A dog ate my laptop.”
