House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

Schools Kiss Chalkboards Goodbye

(Columbus, Miss.) AP--- Computer, meet flat-screen TV. Students, meet cool learning. Education, meet technology.

Classrooms at three Columbus schools are throwing out archaic chalkboards and their dusty erasers in favor of interactive "smart boards" (be sure to click on Take the Tour) designed to take learning to a new level.

"The boards work with a projector and laptop connected to the network to allow any Web page, network program or laptop program to be seen by all and allow the teacher and students to manipulate items by touching the screen just like you'd move with a mouse," said Rebecca Taylor, the elementary technology and testing coordinator at Columbus Municipal School District.


Interesting advance...
