PDAs in the Classroom



I saw this article a few days ago, and thought I’d share… Basically, the article discusses a Kansas City-area middle school that is experimenting with PDAs – as in, 600 PDAs (the school district spent about $180,000).

Their goal? To prepare their students for the 21st century! The article actually says this: “Many educators think that preparing students for the 21st century goes beyond reading, writing, and arithmetic – students must be technologically literate.”

How cool is that? A public school actually teaching kids skills that they’ll need TOMORROW – rather than skills they’d need today, or yesterday. I applaud them!

    $3,000 per PDA? They’re preparing the kids to be defense contractors? (Sorry, but I couldn’t resist: Those are some expensive PDAs!)

    Aggh… I shouldn’t comment on President’s Day. Sorry. $300 per PDA is perfectly reasonable, and it is an interesting idea in education.
