As fashionable as it was recently for school districts to provide tablets to students, some educators are starting to take a second look at such programs after students in Los Angeles figured out how to access content that was supposed to be blocked. "There is no silver bullet or Superman here; technology is a tool, not an end unto itself," said school board member Bennett Kayser, who also pointed to lost, stolen and damaged tablets that caused expenses to soar. Proponents contend tablets allow teachers more freedom to target students' individual needs and help them better engage bored learners.
