Like most things in life, technology is about what you make of it.
Last Monday, the District 35 Board of Education approved the lease or outright purchase of 375 iPads for use by seventh- and eighth-graders, part of its 1-to-1 initiative. Beginning next school year, every student in those grades (and some staff) will have access to his or her own iPad, which can then be used for school purposes. While I’m by no means ancient, this isn’t something I had while growing up, so, to me, it’s an exciting development (not to mention a serious commitment).
