Avoca Elementary School Classroom

This is an example of a classroom in the school district I grew up in. There are Mac Books for every student and the students in junior high get to take the laptops home. i think that this is what a class room should look like. With the laptops the students have a advantage over learning from a teacher standing and writing on a chalk board. according to a study done by teachers at West Point Military Academy "Students of instructors who integrated laptop computers into their classroom strategies (the experimental group) scored significantly higher on all six exams and the final exam than students of instructors who used traditional instructional and note-taking methods (the control group)."
