What Do You “Kno” About Books?

Posted in Education, Parenting

My daughter is in sixth grade and, for her age, she is on the smaller-size. Nevertheless, every morning I marvel as she straps on her backpack and trudges off to school. I'm pretty sure — pound-for-pound — she is carrying more weight than a Roman Centurion went into battle with 2000 years ago.

It needn't be this way. Watch this impressive video on a new tablet computer from Kno that allows students to highlight and make notes directly on book pages. My question is this: Why carry seven books when one thin computer will do the job — and carry a thousand more books and videos to boot?

The device has the potential to revolutionize education. The only question is whether teachers, parents and school administrators can unlearn their old ways.
