The main 10 feature story today highlights Forest Ridge School in Bellevue, Washington, which requires all students to have a laptop. Starting this year, they've gone with tablet PCs as the standard model.
Cool video, and interesting discussion.
Both my daughters attend Forest Ridge School. It's an excellent school, with fantastic teachers. I can attest that the kids (and teachers) make excellent use of the tablets.
And just as an aside, one of the teachers in the video, Miss Cantu, taught both of my daughters math for two years and I give her substantial credit for my daughters' love of math. She's fantastic, and I call out attention to her because it's so important that really great, overworked, underappreciated teachers get the recognition they deserve.
