Freedom to Learn…
By Murray Bourne, 12 Jul 2005
There is an interesting laptop programme in Michigan. It shows "dramatic" improvement in test scores after students started to use laptop computers daily.
Hmmm... when will educators ever realise that education is a multi-variable situation? No one event leads to a "certain" outcome. Maybe the laptops stimulated the teachers to do things differently? Maybe the students felt "special" because they had access to computers (they were mostly from poor, working class backgrounds)? Maybe it was learning in spite of what was designed for students to do?
