Laptop Vs Tablet

Two educators in the trenches duke it out.

For the Love of Laptops: As learning tools, tablets don’t cut it.
By Gary Stager

This isn’t my first time at the rodeo. I led professional development in the world’s first two laptop schools 22 years ago, and in the intervening years I’ve helped schools across the globe go one-to-one, most recently a Korean international school where every K–12 student has a laptop ...

Day of the Tablet: In classrooms, it’s the right tool for the job.
By Dan Brenner

Imagine packing for a weekend trip and trying to decide whether to use a big camp trunk or a small suitcase that fits in the overhead storage area of a plane. Or consider where you would want to shop for groceries for a big dinner party you are hosting: the local supermarket or the neighborhood delicatessen ... (read more).

      This book tells several stories. First, there is the story of Thomas Edison and his creative, fertile mind. Next, there is the story of the actual development of the first practical light bulb. In this way, Edison was more like a proto-Bill Gates, bringing technological advances to the public at large. Then there is the story of the process of invention and entrepreneurship. Edison was a businessman, and his genius extended well beyond the laboratory. Accordingly, in order to profit from this invention, Edison developed the infrastructure to support the light bulb. Thus, this is also a story of how societal needs are by advances in science and technology. The story is a very timely one: Today, attempts to advance electric, hydrogen or other alternative-fueled automobiles are being hampered by a variety of problems, on of which is the absence of an infrastructure to support these vehicles. Finally, there is the story of the implications of Edison's work: how bringing safe, cheap artificial light has changed the way we work and play. This is a very well written book that can appeal to readers on several levels.
