“WILLMAR — The social studies department at Willmar Senior High makes about 3,000 copies a month now. A year ago, that number was 20,000. The primary reason for that 85 percent drop? iPads.
Willmar started the school year by issuing an Apple iPad tablet computer to every junior and senior in the school. The district went from a half dozen iPads a couple years ago to more than 1,700 across the district this year. The district is in its third year of working with iPads. Faculty learned to use the tablets first and looked at ways of using them in classes.”
