Principal at Clearwater High School in Clearwater, Florida

Interview Starts at 24:02

I think eventually what you’ll see is the school will buy X number of devices for those that don’t have or can’t afford them, and then kids will be bringing their own devices, so it will be a blend. I really see that happening, kind of what you see now when you think about the pencil, the pen, and paper where folks are bringing their own materials.

    Looks like my myk page has been upgraded! Book covers (in living color) instead of just a chronological list of books purchased…and…I can search by author’s last name and all of his/her books appear, making it super easy to d/l to one of the 7 kindles in my account circle! This is great as I’m just adding another neophyte and we can fill up her brand new pw quickly and easily. Amazon support continues its 6 star performance…The power adapter for this new kpw fell out of the “box” and, with no questions, they’re overnighting a no-cost replacement to me as I type…..Keep on sleuthin’ and keeping up posted on the Chronicle! Best–Bob
