William at the Student Tablet PC (http://studenttabletpc.com/2007/05/laptops_considered_educationally_empty.html) linked to a story on the New York Times in which laptops in public schools were deemed "educationally empty". Everyone's entitled to their own interpretation of the data. I find it interesting, however, that their leading example of a laptop slacker is also an example of someone who could build a career in the fields of network security or technical writing (or as a tech writer for a network security firm). If the goal is smarter kids, I don't much see the problem with them outsmarting us.
