Schools invest in language labs

According to this article in Education Week, schools are investing more and more money in language labs, and parents are fund raising to help raise the cash. Why, in the age of the iPod, and the internet, would any school install a language lab that is obsolete before it opens? The mind boggles.

??From the article:
“The push to install technology-rich language labs is growing, so much so in some places that parent fundraising organizations are making it the focus of their efforts. Educators who use the labs say that they allow students to spend significantly more time doing language-practice exercises, such as hearing themselves speak.”

  1. It is great that schools are investing in language learning but it will not fix the bigger problem and students will pass class without gaining true language skills.
