Recent News // Charlotte students to get iPads this fall

Administrators say technology will enhance instruction, engage children

CHARLOTTE — Envision a classroom where teachers can give a pop quiz and access the results within minutes of completion. Students struggling with a math or science concept would have the option of watching an additional lesson about it at home. Or how about a “virtual visit” to the Smithsonian Museum?

This fall students at Charlotte schools could benefit from all of the above, thanks to a decision to use $3 million from a 2010 millage to give each of them iPads.

The move will utilize all of the millage funds that were earmarked for technology and took more than a year to get the green light. It makes iPads available to every student — and will enable grades seven through 12 to bring them home as well.
