iPads in Schools
Shamily of Teens Online
As our generation is becoming completely electronic, many teens are becoming submerged in many electronic devices. However, not only for games, music and personal use, electronic gadgets are also being used for educational purposes. Many school districts around the state are providing each student with their very own iPad for use.
One example is the Wayzata School District. All students in grades Kindergarten to 3, and 6 to 8, were given iPads. These iPads were distributed in early January. Students in grades 6 to 8 are taking home iPads daily for homework and studying for tests. The main purpose for handing out iPads is to improve learning, however students are also allowed to download any other apps of their choice. By the year 2016, the Wayzata district hopes to put an Apple iPad in the hands of each and every student.
