Here's an interesting article on a study done out of Michigan on how Wireless PCs motivate students to learn. "Of the 4,245 students (mostly sixth graders) who completed the survey, more than 60 percent said the notebooks increased their interest in learning. More than 87 percent said they want the computers next year, and nearly 60 percent said notebooks make schoolwork easier." (via K.C. Jones, TechWeb Technology News)
Don't you think it's not the wireless or hardware but the information they're now able to obtain (imho).
