In Marion County I-Pads are the New Spiral Notebook
There's no doubt today's youth is technology driven.
In Marion County a pilot program has students working math problems on iPads.
Howard Middle School in Ocala tried out their new techy classroom learning tool Wednesday. The iPads use applications and websites for lessons.
"Apps" for science and reading are also on the table.
Dr. N.H. Jones Elementary, Fort McCoy K-8, and the Marion Technical Institute are also part of the pilot project and have, or will receive their iPads within the coming weeks.
The pilot project includes 30 iPads for student use under teacher supervision.
The iPads cost the district 60 thousand dollars for all four schools. Funding comes from district, school, and grant technology budgets.
The district is also considering the use of other electronics, like the Kindle and net-book.
