From eSchool News, by Steve Largent — “Education has certainly changed from when I was in school, but when one of my grandkids started pre-kindergarten this year, I realized just how different things were since my youngest child was in high school just seven years ago. Along with the usual school supplies of notebooks and pencils, wireless devices are quickly becoming indispensable learning aids in schools.”
Largent goes on to explain that students can make their mobile devices personal, which means they have access to information and tools necessary to succeed in school when they need it the most.
