Apple Signs $30 Million iPad Contract With Second-Largest School District In U.S. – Cult of Mac

See on Scoop.itiPad & Literacy

Apple just scored a big win with the education industry last night as the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) announced it has signed a $30 million contract with Apple to supply its students with iPads in the classroom.

Jim Harmon‘s insight:

As much as I love my Apple iPad, I am always concerned about larger, centralized school districts taking too big a bit in the realm of improving teaching and learning, lest they choke. While I don’t know all the details, nor do we yet know how LAUSD will approach training and implementation for teachers, I will be tuned in to this developing educational story to learn from the triumphs and failures, no matter how large or small.
