Arizona school won't use textbooks - Tech News & Reviews -


TUCSON, Ariz. - A high school in Vail will become the state's first all-wireless, all-laptop public school this fall. The 350 students at the school will not have traditional textbooks. Instead, they will use electronic and online articles as part of more traditional teacher lesson plans.
Vail Unified School District's decision to go with an all-electronic school is rare, experts say. Often, cost, insecurity, ignorance and institutional constraints prevent schools from making the leap away from paper.

What I find interesting is that Vail has selected the Apple iBook rather than Tablet PCs. I wonder what benefits and issues they will encounter in comparison to schools that have selected Tablets as their primary plaform. Will there be a demonstrable difference?
