[vox] Education Week: "Schools Combine Netbooks, Open Source"

Just saw this article via Google News (alert for "Tux Paint" ;) )

Education Week's Digital Directions: Schools Combine Netbooks, Open Source


  The marriage of netbooks and open source has given schools the power to create and expand 1-to-1 computing

  By Patricia Mohr
  Oct 15th (online), Oct 20th (print)

  Thanks to the relatively simultaneous development of smaller and
  cheaper laptops and advances in open-source computing, schools that
  could not afford 1-to-1 computing programs a few years ago are finding
  ways to adopt them today. As they do, teachers are relaying the
  message to students that their learning environments are becoming more
  mobile, virtual, and interactive than ever before.

  "This year is different than any year in the past," Chris Scott, a
  history and technology teacher at Santa Ynez School, a public school
  serving students in grades 2-8 in Santa Ynez, Calif., says he told his
  students on the first day of class. The 222-student school, now
  wireless, gave every student in grades 6-8 a netbook computer to use
  in language arts, history, science, and math classes.
