Windows HS: Microsoft designs a school system: Microsoft helped the Philadelphia school system modernize in a pilot program.
Students — who are called “learners” — use smart cards to register attendance, open their digital lockers and track calories they consume. They carry laptops, not books, and the entire campus has wireless Internet access.
Teachers, or “educators,” rather than using blackboards, have interactive “smart boards” that allow teachers to zoom in and out, write or draw, and even link to the Internet.
There’s no library, but an “interactive learning center” where information is all digital and a “multimedia specialist” will help out students.
Why did we need to rename “student”?
