Back to School with Blackberry Playbook 2.0

Our children are growing up in a world so different from our own.  A world where chalk boards are no longer used, smart boards are the new chalk boards...lessons come from websites, directed by teachers, and a computer is the new #2 pencil.  The world has changed, dramatically.  I remember when my high school got all new computers, and the seinors weren't allowed to use them...
