The Cape Girardeau Southeast Missourian reports that the Cape Girardeau School District is the latest to pick up on education's newest fad- laptops for every student:
Assistant superintendent for academic services Sherry Copeland said the 1:1 initiative "opens up the world to our students." Students will be able to work on homework and projects anytime, because they'll have access to information.
"There's so much instruction available on the Web; it just makes sense," Copeland said. "Kids now are so technologically advanced. ... The days of a teacher on a stage lecturing are over. ... The easiest way to engage children now is through technology."
