As of yesterday, Welborn Academy students in High Point, North Carolina received brand new netbooks. Today, the students got to test them out in the classroom.
Teacher Courtnie James supports the idea of netbooks in the classroom and strongly believes that netbooks help prepare students for college. Her goal is to make her class paperless and have all assignments done electronically. James would like to have her students use the Internet as a resource and type up their papers on a word processor. She feels like technology plays a big role in the lives of her students and that a netbook is just another tool that can be successfully implemented in a classroom setting.
