  Arizona School ditching textbooks for laptops
A high school in Vail, Arizona is switching out their textbooks for wireless laptops for all of their 350 students. The laptops are going to cost $850 per student which isn't too much more expensive than the $500-$600 the textbooks were costing. Superintendant of Vail Unififed School District Calvin Baker is planning on having 750 students going to their fast-growing high school eventually. He's really into getting laptops for the student too,
I'm sure there are going to be some adjustments. But we visited other schools using laptops. And at the schools with laptops, students were just more engaged than at non-laptop schools.
