Homework assignments at Massachusetts' Ashland High School have been modernized, thanks to senior Ankit Kumar and junior Andrew Walter, who created the computer system called the Homework Beacon. Teachers at the school are starting to use a computerized system that allows them to upload assignments and other information, as well as move the due dates for various assignments and projects in real time. "The fact of the matter is student-teacher communication is stuck in the 20th century," Kumar told the Ashland school committee.
