Laptop or tablet use in high school- Any experience?
My son's high school sent out a notice that it wants students to bring laptops, tablets, and I-phones to school to enhance the learning experience. I'm hoping someone has experience with this situation.
Is it better for a student to use a laptop or an I-pad? Is it the kind of thing that students are constantly losing through theft? Personally, I view this as an awful idea because of all the distractions on a computer, but if someone has some tips on what to buy, the best uses for computers in the classroom, etc, I'd like to hear them.
