Technology works when it is combined with explicit training of how to use the technology. Littleton Public Schools is doing this really well! On March 17, The Fischbowl blogs about the fifth grade EEEPC writing project. http://thefischbowl.blogspot.com/
Littleton Public Schools with the help of their CIO, Dan Mass, has figured out how to get the fifth graders Writing with Laptops. I was at one of their elementary schools last week and saw this in person. The kids were so excited and were writing up a storm!
