The Future is Here

Standard School Supply at Oxbridge Academy...
Katherine received her Macbook Pro yesterday and so did all of her classmates.
They are having fun this weekend connecting on Skype and Facebook, etc.
In addition to each student having his/her personal lap top, the classrooms
are equipped with mac desktops. Several textbooks and many homework
assignments are on-line. This is definitely the future of education. I am aware of one public Middle School in our area where each student is using an ipad. To me, this seems more cost effective than purchasing new sets of books every year. I predict that more and more schools (public and private) will go this direction and find it to be cost saving and efficient. In addition to cost and efficiency, this will better prepare students for college and future careers.
