High Tech Gadgets Hitting Some Classrooms
GAINESVILLE - Some school supplies this year are becoming a little more high tech.
Queen of Peace Catholic Academy is equipping their 6th graders as pioneers of the iPad.
Teachers are putting apps on the iPads so they can network with other schools on course curricula and assignments.
One 6th grade teacher says she feels fortunate to have the iPads, becuase it will keep her students on track.
"I think the best thing for the students is that it will help them to be organized," she said. "And it's all in one place. They don't have five different notebooks with papers everywhere."
The school did buy the iPads, but the students were required to buy covers. They also have insurance on each of them, just in case any are dropped.
