Pencils, Paper and touch screens

PC World ran an article this week about the increase in technology used in the classroom.  Technology in the education system is one of the more interesting aspects of my profession.  Whether it be Promethean interactive whiteboards, projectors, shared monitors, or laptop programs, the education system seems willing to take on new ideas.  

Youngsters are attracted to technology as much as anyone.  They practically drive the cell phone market in the states.  It should be the duty of teachers, principals and super intendents to investigate these advances thoroughly and educate themselves on how to effectively use them as tools to engage students more deeply.

Just a quick thought.
