Summary "In 1997 a class of Year 7 students at Balwyn High School was given laptops for use across the curriculum. Spanning two years, this initiative became a case study into the impact of computers in education." "Computers, Laptops and Tools summarises the findings of this program. Through student journals, teacher observations and academic performance, the effect of computers is charted to explore the true value of 'computers as tools for learning'." "Examining student attitudes and usage, as well as changes to classroom procedures, this research monograph makes a significant contribution to the long-standing computer-education debate."--BOOK JACKET
