School replaces all workbooks by giving pupils touch screen umpcs
Posted 6/3/08
I was just told this by my cousin that his school has become the first school in Europe
where every pupil has their own handheld touch screen Ultra Mobile Personal Computer (UMPC) to do work on in place of all books, jotters ect...
Im so jealous! hopefully more schools will do this in the future
Anyway what do you lot think?

isle of islay in scotland.. used to go to it and theyre actually really poor...but they got the funding just so they could basically be guinea pigs for testing how well they work for school.
Plus theres only about 300 pupils anyway.
