“New Hampton School announced that all incoming ninth-grade students in the fall will receive an Apple iPad as part of a pilot program to improve technology integration in the classroom,” WMUR reports.
“The program was funded by a reunion gift from the school’s class of 1960. The school will evaluate the program to determine whether it should be expanded to all students,” WMUR reports. “School officials said the iPad’s slim design, speed and available software allows it to provide access to textbooks and other useful tools. Students will be able to create and share work easily, the school said.”
WMUR reports, “New Hampton School is an independent, co-educational, college preparatory secondary school of 310 students from 30 states and 20 countries.”
