The days of Huntsville students struggling to carry backpacks bulging with heavy textbooks are coming to an end as the city school system becomes more tech-savvy. The district has bought more than 3,600 computers over the past month as part of Superintendent Casey Wardynski’s push to create a 21st-century school system. “In the old days, bringing this kind of technology into a school would be a big deal,” Wardynski said. “We live in a new age, and the role of teachers is changing. They don’t work with a piece of chalk and a little blackboard at each desk anymore.”
