[BALU] B'ham on Slashdot

A laptop alone will not educate a child. There is so much focus on
giving laptops to kids, but no one ever develops a solid program around
the technology that uses it to teach anything worthwhile. Every program
I've seen just gives a laptop to the kids, and uses the same old way of
doing things in class. Only difference is the kids can watch youtube
during class.

Outside of that, I've heard that laptop programs have been a 
disappointment in general, but a quick Google does not produce much.
