[math-learn] Maths in a "Laptop Secondary School"

I am doing some consulting with a secondary school in Rockhampton which is implementing a 1-to-1
laptop program (for Year 9 to Year 12 students, but not the Year 8s).

The emphasis is on using the laptops for an investigative and collaborative approach to the learning
of mathematics.

I would be interested in conversing with some schools that have already started down this path -
what works, what doesn't work, what might work if modified, technical issues to be aware of, etc.

TIA for any assistance you can provide.

Rex

PS "TIA" means "Thanks in advance ...". Someone asked me about it.
