Area schools spending big money on new presentation technology

Seeking increased involvement and focus by students, area school districts are spending tens of millions of dollars on new presentation technology.

The Post and Courier has a story that explains the how, what, and why.

Sometimes organizations get mislead by a technology's wow factor and mistake it for results, let's hope that's not happening here. But on the flip side, I can see where not having to learn via overhead slides has real appeal to students.
