Submission + - Examining the worth of laptops in Public Education

Natros writes: "This commenter picks apart the report presented by the Maine School board on the use of laptops in classrooms, and concludes that there is very little educational merit to the program. His analysis may be a bit controversial, but I think he asks some good, hard questions that need to be answered about the best way to leverage technology in the classroom. The author appears to be a software developer himself, so he's not ignorant on these issues.
