Zeeland teachers have been trained how to use iPads, now it's the students' turn.  Zeeland high school students have received iPads.

Middle school students will get iPads later in the school year. 

Last month, we told you Zeeland students would be getting iPads. Now the time has arrived.  Will the iPads be a distraction or will they be a valuable teaching tool?  My guess is a little of both.

One thing is for sure.  The iPads will have students excited.  If that excitement can be turned into a positive learning experience, mission accomplished.  But it's not cheap.  $1.5 million of a $6 million bond is being used to get iPads in the hands of students and teachers.

Check out this discussion about how the iPads will be used in class.
