The St. Petersburg Times reports that two local elementary schools are participating in a pilot program to give wireless laptops to third-graders. As many as 110 kids at the schools will be taking home their own laptops for the rest of the year. They will continue to use the laptops for the next two years, while district officials monitor their progress with the technology. If the pilot program is a success, it will help schools make the case for giving laptops to all students. Administrators believe that the wireless laptops will lead to better attendance and a decrease in disciplinary problems.
