After reading this brief article at home with my real breakfast --prior to the scheduled Tech Breakfast, I thought it was worth sharing. Please spend a minute or two and read about a logical look at "why laptops" in the classroom.
I personally know master teachers--let me rephrase this--I personally observe master teachers who teach beautifully without technology. But the point I hope you will glean from this article isn't about the teaching; rather, it's about learning. We have a new generation of students who challenge us with a new set of learning skills. Explore the why. And keep rolling those laptops into your classrooms.
