Derided Computer Plan Clicks With Maine Students
from the took-them-long-enough dept
When Maine’s governor first announced his plans to give every student in the state a laptop computer, people told him he was crazy. Now, however, that the plan is underway it seems that many of the sketpics have changed their minds. The students love the computers, and parents feel that their children are receiving a better educational experience. While I’m sure not everyone is thrilled with the program, it certainly sounds like it was well planned, and so far, has turned out much better than expected. What will be interesting is to see how it works over time, and if other states begin to offer similar plans.
