We're famous!

The October Apple eNews for Education just arrived in my inbox and I was pleasantly surprised to read this:

For the 2006-2007 school year, all Mason Middle School students in Monroe County, Michigan, will get their own Apple notebook as part of a pilot on 1 to 1 learning. "We are all very excited about it," says Ben Russow, associate principal. "Teachers will have access to so many resources and the students will be able to create podcasts, slideshows, and iMovies. It's an important tool with tremendous opportunity. The teachers are calling it the pen and pencil of the 21st century."
