iPads make their way into Tri-State classrooms

Schools across the Tri-State are ditching the pens and paper for a new learning tool.

Seven Hills Schools begins the academic year with iPads in the classroom. The 1 to 1 ipad2 program begins for teachers and students in grades six through 12 starting August 21st. Last school year, Seven Hills held a pilot program with students and parents in grades six and nine before making the switch to the full upper school. The school is also launching a new program called beginnings, designed specifically for toddlers ages 12 to 36 months and their parents as a pre-Kindergarten readiness opportunity.

Badin High School in Middletown is also bringing the latest technology to the classroom. More than 500 iPads were distributed to students early this month as the school welcomes its largest freshman class of 158.

Notre Dame Academy also has iPads in the classroom. Endless apps will connect teachers and students in every classroom.
