Learning more about computers for students

I will be traveling to North Carolina this week to learn more about the Tupelo Public School District’s new computer initiative.

I’ll be going to Duke University where they have models of modern classrooms that allow for more interaction between students, and I’ll travel to Mooresville, N.C., a school district that has already implemented a one-to-one computer program. In fact, in Mooresville, all students in grades four to 12 have laptops. There I’ll be able to see how they’re using the computers, what difficulties they’ve faced and what advantages they’ve seen. I’ll be posting updates and photos here in this blog and I’ll be filing updates for the Daily Journal.

Stay tuned. I also paln to post updates on Twitter: @ChrisKieffer.

If you have any questions, please send them and I’ll do my best to answer.
