Replacing School Books With Broadband
Philly's $63 million 'School of the future'
PBS checks in
on a $63 million "school of the future"
that has been constructed in one of Philadelphia's higher crime rate neighborhoods. Notebooks and textbooks are replaced by laptops and broadband (technical specifics are painfully sparse). "Each student also carries a smart card that, among other things, gives them access to digital lockers,"
says the report - which also notes that the card even tracks the calories each student consumes during lunch. There's slightly more detail at the Philly city website
and in this older E-School News

Re: Cry babies
Yeah, just what I'd want my kid carrying in a high crime neighborhood. Something the local crackheads could get more than just their next few hits from stealing from them. Why not just paint big targets on their backs.
