Kindergarten kids get laptops

An old article only recently brought to my attention… particularly interested in,  “The computers will be wireless and, weighing in at under three pounds, they will be easily used in both reading circle and outside the building to explore nature?

What, how to ‘jack the neighbours wifi?, Smack that bug?, Bury in the sandpit?, Use the screen for finger painting?

There is a lot to be said for engaging children in the technology that will be a major part of their lives, (I say that as a self-professed reformed Luddite and yes I see the irony of using a blog to spread the message) but please let them have a childhood before they get plugged into the machine and have their sense of wonder diminished.
