Pilot program gives ninth-graders laptops
Posted by: Justina Spencer
Tucked in a classroom on Lake Weir High's campus, a group of ninth-graders is just completing a pilot program that is considered the future of learning.

In rolling cabinets, more than two dozen, 9-inch laptop computers sit in charging stations. Each one can hold every book a student needs for a school year, which means students in this freshman English class have been doing almost all their reading on a computer screen.

Jaquan Newmones, next year's sophomore class president, said the laptop experiment has made a difference in how he views English class.
