A blog about teaching the magnificent students of South Central L.A. Opinions are my own and do not represent LAUSD.
|from L.A. School Report|
The Los Angeles Unified School District, however, is paying $768 per device for its students, teachers and administrators, making it one of the nation's most expensive technology programs.After we overpaid for these devices with bond money, they made their appearance in my school for one purpose only: to test children. No opportunity to Skype with schools around the world, no ability to make Prezis, no general internet access to look stuff up. Once testing was over, these devices were sent back to the district.
At Dymally Senior High, "current and former administrators refused to take responsibility for missing computer devices," the report said.-LA TimesStudents will not want to use these devices with only Pearson software installed on them.
