Downers Grove elementary schools adopt Apple technology

Inside El Sierra Elementary School on a recent afternoon, Kelly Wyatt led her fourth-grade class in an exercise on adverbs.


But the students weren’t studying from individual workbooks or coming up to a whiteboard. Instead, Wyatt walked about the room with an iPad, which beamed interactive images onto a screen at the head of the class. Wyatt passed the iPad to a student, who circled the adverb in the sentence on the image.
