We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: schools and Tablet PC’s go together like peanut butter and jelly. They were made for each other.
Check this story out about the Sparta Township Public School System expanding their Tablet PC program, due in large part to a grant:
The Sparta Education Foundation Board of Trustees unanimously approved two grants totaling more than $53,000 to support technology improvements for Sparta Township Public Schools.
The second grant for $22,200 will be used to purchase 10 tablet PCs and 10 wireless projectors. This is to expand the pilot use of tablet PCs as an instructional tool to the elementary and middle school teaching staff. Currently, the district is piloting the use of the tablet PCs at the high school. The initial feedback from this project is very positive. The tablets are being used by the teachers and students during instruction. Along with the tablet PC, the pilot teachers also receive a wireless projector. The combination allows the teachers to utilize the tablet as an interactive white board.
