Kindergartners Learn with iPads

ipadsEPWHITE CITY, Ore. — Kindergartners in the Eagle Point School District will tap and swipe their way through school this year. District officials bought enough iPads for all students to be able to use in class, just in time for the district’s full-day kindergarten launch.

Early learning experts say the iPads will be more visual and portable for students.

“A desktop would need a tower, a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse. These are much more portable. Students will be able to gather in a smaller area but have their iPads available and the teacher will be able to direct them,” said Table Rock Elementary Principal Ginny Walker.
