Fla. Middle School Giving iPads To All Students

Inverness, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Citrus County is providing iPads to all its elementary school students.

The county started providing the tablets to most middle schoolers last year.

WTSP reports that by the end of this year, Citrus County is on schedule for every single student in the district to have access to an iPad.

The county plans to have 5,800 iPads within three years. That would be enough to assign one to every student.

Superintendent Sandra Himmel told the station that they are “pioneering a way of learning that keeps today’s kids engaged.”

She says that students use iPads as textbooks, notepads, chalkboards, libraries, and much more that teachers have to develop lessons plans around the tablets.

She feels that this way of learning will eventually become the norm for students across the state.
