Microsoft presents . . . School ?!?

Yes indeed. The School District of Philadelphia and Microsoft have joined together to open the "School of the Future." Even though I myself use Firefox, there's a whole host of reasons to be intrigued (and not just scared) by the initiatives at this school, including their attempts to be a green institution, their promotion of a clear educational vision, and their development of a curriculum built around leadership competencies.

Of course, there's also the danger that the students, carrying their laptops, will be mugged on the way home...
