The Future of Schools

Probably in the 80's, people thought that computers would have taken over everything we do, including school. But even today in 2010, we use real life textbooks to learn from in school, and in some cases, chalkboards. Now at my school, every room has a projector and a smart board, so we are a little more advanced than some schools, but we still use paper to learn from.
