The Great Laptop Debate

I just learned of a fantastic blog giving us a wonderful peek into the debate of a community whose public school district is seeking to implement a 1:1 laptop program. They were kind enough to include a link to this blog, though I do not know if they seek to include Linux in their program. However, it really doesn't matter. Though Linux can save a lot of money with laptop programs, the goal is not to save money or deploy computers. The goal is to help students learn how to become great learners in the ever-changing global marketplace of the 21st Century.

The town is Oberlin, Ohio and the blog is called Community Diaries. I encourage you to take a look. Though I am sure many great things will be added to this discussion, I would begin with the comments made to the bottom post on the blog.
