Laurel Hill School iPads proving their worth

“The iPad stores textbooks. That way, a teacher will never have to listen to a student’s excuses as to why he did not bring his textbook to class,” senior Robert Hand said. “The assignment will always be right on the iPad. Informational handouts will also no longer be a problem; all a teacher would have to do is send a digital form of the handout to the class and they will always have the assignment.”

Miller said the kids treat the tablets with more TLC than they have their textbooks.

“The kids have been real respectful of their iPads,” she said. “I think they’d forget their purse before they’d leave their iPad laying around. I hear them ask each other, ‘I’m going to the bathroom. Would you watch my iPad?’ You see textbooks laying around sometimes but never an iPad.”
