I wonder why Gabriel. So many kids have some sort of smart device at home it would seem that it work well depending on the course. Spelling is great. I'm speaking of elementary kids.

I don´t know what the reason was, but they often had some technical problem and instead of helping during the lesson they just caused problems. But the best thing about the tablets at school is the leighter backpack.
