Nice find Chuck, I encourage people to click over to the NYT article you link to: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/13/education/mooresville-school-district-a-laptop-success-story.html?pagewanted=3&_r=2&hp

To me, the most interesting element of all is the willingness to trust the students to have the motivation to make their own progress. The examples cited show how many of the insecurities teenagers have - and can get in the way of their education - can be handled through online tools.


There's also a very good Freakonomics podcast on this topic and some research being done in NYC:

Looking back now, I just cannot imagine how I could have completed any of my school assignments without the internet! I'm glad my kids will have the chance to expand their horizons so easily just from the comfort of their rooms.


Technology will do great in educational learning. But nothing is perfect in world. So still it have some missing points. Anyway thanks for sharing such useful post here.


Outstading work. Very well introduced how technology transformed educate


Excellent information. I started tracking this topic back in 2001 for a long-term study in the advancements of teaching techology. Today, 12 years later, it seems there is still the issue of the students out pacing the teachers. This article was originally published in 2002 and it still rings true today: http://www.technologysource.org/article/preparing_teachers_to_use_learning_objects/
