A Michigan school district is the first in the state to adopt a program that will put an iPad in the hands of each student in grades 3-12 by next fall. Just two weeks into the program, educators say it is changing the way they operate and provide instruction. One ninth-grade literature teacher says the devices allow students to participate more directly in class, highlighting passages in books as they are discussed. Others say they are using the devices to record and deliver lessons via video, while some students are creating their own safety video for a metal-shop class.
