Michigan Middle High School Students Assigned Laptops Instead of Textbooks

wwmt-tv

A pilot project in Michigan is exploring ways of delivering instruction without textbooks. In place of the textbooks, students will receive laptop computers. Do you think our education system is headed in the right direction?

The Mona Shores Public School project aims to explore the best ways to use online instruction and find out effects on learning.  Michigan students in two seventh-grade social studies classes and high school English, math and psychology classes will be assigned their own computer.

The Muskegon area district says middle school students will use the computers nearly all the time in class while high school students will get a mix that includes textbooks. Also as part of the effort, one teacher will hold algebra and advanced placement calculus classes in a computer lab.
