San Diego School District Buys 26,000 iPads for Students

The San Diego Unified School District is taking a significant step forward in enhancing its educational technology by acquiring 26,000 iPads for student use, as reported by San Diego’s 10News. This initiative, which comes with a price tag of $15 million, is supported by funds from Proposition S, designated for updating school technology.

The iPads will be distributed among 5th, 8th, and high school students across 340 classrooms, marking one of the most extensive iPad integrations in a K-12 educational setting.

Meanwhile, the Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District in Massachusetts has recently concluded the first year of a more modest iPad pilot initiative. This smaller program equipped all Kindergarten classrooms with 83 iPads.

A comparable initiative was also launched in Auburn, Maine. Although it’s still early days, the outcomes from these projects are preliminary yet promising.
