Bettynh BS: New curricula in US schools? (89* d) RE: BS: New curricula in US schools? 12 Dec 12

Here are a couple links for your consideration:

Sir Ken Robinson

Salman Kahn

Both are TEDtalks, a favorite form of entertainment for me. Certainly, computers are and will be changing the way schools work. Do you think the idea that each child should be given a computer (or tablet) is a good idea? I'm not talking logistics at the moment. My guess is that within 5 years tablets will be cheaper than textbooks. Certainly for math/technical subjects, the Kahn Academy model makes a lot of sense.
