Read the quote below and reflect on the following question. Be prepared to share your answer with your colleagues.

Quote:


"A digital assistant [a laptop] can serve as a database for work and files, a sketchpad and planner for projects, a publisher for reports and papers, and a conduit for research that provides access to online resources. It's a communication facilitator for e-mail, instant messaging, and blogging; a calculator and what-if analyzer of data and information; and a digital processor for photos and video. It's a device that facilitates a student's thinking, analyzing, presenting, writing, reading, researching, revising, communicating, questioning, proposing, creating, surmising, and publishing."*
