School gives iPads to kids to boost reading
| Sep 16, 2010
Whoops of glee filled a classroom at Alexander Dawson School in Boulder, Colorado, earlier this week as teachers handed out new iPads to each fifth-grader.
The school is one of the first in the country to give iPads to individual K-12 students. As part of a pilot project, about 90 fifth- and sixth-grade students are getting the 16G Wi-Fi iPads -- which retail for $499 -- to help with reading, studying, researching and experimentation.
