We allow our kids to sled during recess. (I hope our lawyer is not reading this blog.) The Episcopal Academy, in a moment of undiluted genius, bought about 50 cheap, plastic sleds. Pretty much all day I have watched these disciplined, private school kids march up the steps without pushing, stand in line at the top of the hill, and careen down the hill screaming. This is educational technology at work.
Before you put thirty thousand dollars into a laptop cart full of macs, consider buying a set of cheap plastic sleds.
