TECHNOLOGY: To iPad or not to iPad?

February 28, 2014

Whitley County Consolidated Schools is considering a 1:1 program that could outfit each student with an iPad or laptop — but not without some forethought. WCCS created a task force to research the benefits of technology. State officials are also heading up a technology program that would allow students to complete class work from home.

COLUMBIA CITY — As technology is becoming more and more prominent in the world, school officials are questioning how that technology will fit into the classroom.

Some school districts have moved into the world of technology through 1:1 programs — each student receives a device.

Whitko Community School Corporation successfully began its 1:1 program this school year, and Smith-Green Community School District is also working to incorporate technology into the classroom, using iPads in the elementary classrooms.
