Recently, the Learning Matters blog posted a 9-minute piece that they filmed about a school district in Mooresville, North Carolina that went “completely digital.” All of the students and teachers from grades 4 – 12 have laptops (over 5,000). This project began 3 years ago and the teachers are describing big differences in their teaching and the students’ learning.
Is this any different then other 1-to-1 experiences? Is it really about the computers? What changes do you see in the pedagogy of the school? It is difficult to answer these questions in 9 minutes, but what do you think?
Watch the video and see what you think? They have had reductions in school problems. They have an active filtering system on the information accessible. They blog YouTube, FaceBook and MySpace.
What do you think?
