A high school in Vail will become the state’s first all-wireless, all-laptop public school this fall. The 350 students at the school will not have traditional textbooks. Instead, they will use electronic and online articles as part of more traditional teacher lesson plans.
Vail Unified School District’s decision to go with an all-electronic school is rare, experts say. Often, cost, insecurity, ignorance and institutional constraints prevent schools from making the leap away from paper.
I applaud this move by Vail school officials, and knowing that our nation’s Universities are actively recruiting students who can major in Internet Poker, Blogging About Nothing and Staring At Pornography, I’m certain parents and kids alike will concur.
