New Jersey HS Sophomore Advocates iPads in the Classroom
May 24, 2011 § Leave a comment
Millburn high school sophomore Sahil Gupta has become an advocate for iPad usage in the classroom for his district. In a piece for his local Patch news site, Gupta demonstrated that students are also on board with the new technology and that the move is both educationally and financially beneficial for the district.
The iPad has the potential to revolutionize school technology (far beyond the overhead projector, or even the SmartBoard). Use of the tablet has been successfully implemented in school districts in New York City, Chicago, Scottsdale, and San Francisco. If the Millburn BOE passes on this opportunity, they will have made a grave mistake. The digital learning environment is the future.
