It seems that tablets being used in our education system are becoming more commonplace these days. To that effect, the San Diego Unified School District has recently purchased about 26,000 iPads that will be making its way into the hands of its students this fall, thus making it one of the largest programs to date. This is part of a voter-approved funding program known as “Proposition S”, which basically sets funds aside that will allow technology in the classroom to remain up to date. No word on what sort of software the district will be utilizing, but some are speculating that it could use Apple’s iBooks 2 which has been enhanced for textbooks. The iPads will mainly be utilized in 5th and 8th grade classrooms as well as some high school classes. So if you’re a parent whose kids are attending any of the schools in the San Diego Unified School District, it looks like your kids are in for a treat this fall.
