Ky. schools aim for wireless, 'smart' devices


ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) -- An eastern Kentucky school district is aiming to have wireless networks in all schools and "smart" instructional devices in every classroom by 2012.

Cary Williams, the director of technology for Ashland Independent Schools, said the district also wants all computers to have updated operating systems and software by the deadline.

The Ashland Daily Independent reports that the school district is also reviewing the technology skills of students and teachers to determine how much computer access they have at home.

A "smart" classroom would include a computer workstation at the teacher's desk, a document camera coupled with an overhead projector and interactive devices such as touch-sensitive smartboards, which look like whiteboards. They are connected to computers and users write on them with digital pens.
