S.D. district plans long-term investment in technology

A South Dakota school district has used technology grants to test the use of iPads and other technology in the classroom. Now, the Sioux Falls School District is working to launch a one-to-one program, in which within two years every student in kindergarten through second grade will be assigned an iPad, at $499 each, and students in grades 3-12 will receive Google Chromebooks, at $279 each. The total cost of the program is expected to be about $7.3 million, with additional costs coming later as the devices need to be replaced.
