Alan November recently posted on the Edustat Blog about laptop program lashback. It's an interesting article (with many comments that follow). Among several interesting points, he argues that labeling a program a "laptop program" dooms it to inevitable failure, because it puts the focus on the technology instead of the learning. The article includes a list of institutional changes that must occur in order to build "capacity" for technology-infused programs to succeed.
