Students and Technology

According to a recent survey, teachers believe that access to more technology would benefit students. “Teachers say that more opportunities for collaboration with other teachers and greater access to technology and other instructional tools would significantly improve their ability to help diverse learners succeed, both now and in the future.” 

A high school in Delaware believes in this concept, that next fall all of their students will be carrying IPads instead of textbooks.  "The goal is to prepare them for life after high school in a high-tech world, officals say."  

Delmarva Christian High School students, from to left, John Hopkins, Rob Van Pelt, Haley Embleton, Kyle Kokjohn and Geoffrey Shepard use iPad technology for data collection in Advanced Placement Chemistry.

I would have loved to have that option when I was in high school.  What about you?
