School district eyes iPads
Tech committee is recommending purchase of several tablets
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
In an effort to keep pace with changing technology, the Camas School District is considering purchasing several ipad Minis, adapters and a MacBook for classroom use this coming school year.
The purchase would be a part of the district's revised technology plan. The current one is set to expire at the end of the school year.
"We're basically looking through the past plan, and aligning ideas with curriculum and technology," said Jeff Snell, deputy superintendent. "We want to get carts of ipad Minis into classrooms."
Currently, there is a group of eighth-grade students and teachers who are participating in a tablet pilot project, and the information is being used to gather feedback for the technology committee as they assess district needs.
