Eastern High School in Louisville, Ky., lightened the load of its 10th-, 11th- and 12th-grade students by issuing tablet computers loaded with textbooks and other educational tools. Social studies teacher Kristina Sauer said the 1,500 tablets help keep students engaged in school. "These are kids that will go into a workforce that expects them to be proficient with technology. These are students who will go to college and be required to do all of this online work," said school principal Lana Kaelin.
