Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for TechTerm_Image 2008.pngHave you ever wondered what does HTTP:// means?

Definition:  Short for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol, the underlying protocol used by the World Wide Web.

HTTP defines how messages are formatted and transmitted, and what actions Web servers and browsers should take in response to various commands.

For example, when you enter a URL in your browser, this actually sends an HTTP command to the Web server directing it to fetch and transmit the requested Web page.

In the State of Maine, the realization of such a plan is being put to the test.  Presently, the state is providing all middle school students with laptops.

The use of this technology as an educational tool will be a continuing area of interest for all of us.

One thing is for sure, how our kids and how we learn will never be the same.
