Kudos for iBook program

A Minnesota community is find that an iBook student laptop intiative has and won over many more supporters, after the initial rollout was met with a lot of resistance. Pioneer Press reports that the iBooks are well integrated into the curricula, student engagement has improved, behavioral issues have decreased, and students' attitude toward school has generally improved. "One year after Oak-Land administrators handed out about 1,200 laptops, students and teachers are still giddy about having a computer they can use in class and at home. Many residents were angry when the Stillwater school district entered into a five-year, $1.75 million deal with Apple in September 2003, saying they felt the plan was poorly communicated and pushed through too quickly.
