GFW Expanding Use Of iPads 24 Sep 11

The use of iPad personal computers for GFW High School students was deemed such a success in it’s first year last year that it has now been expanded to include GFW students in every grade level. GFW has issued 10 iPads to staff members in each of the district’s middle and elementary school buildings in Fairfax and Gibbon. Each location will also have a mobile computer cart that includes 24 iPads that can be checked out to a classroom for specific projects or group learning situations. The district has saved money since the original acquisition of the iPads due to eliminating the need to purchase textbooks and other learning materials that can now be downloaded digitally, usually at a lower cost.
