Classrooms play with new ipads

Lincoln Elementary School in Rexburg is taking multimedia to another level by working ipads into their lesson plans.

These kids are putting down their pencils and picking up ipads to learn math, reading and spelling lessons.

The school just added 30 new ipads.

“Last year we did a needs assessment where we pulled the teachers and the parents to see what kind of needs we had and we came up with a need for individual stations for I-Pads in the classrooms,” said Principal Scott Shirley.

The cost for the ipads was $14,000.

Funds were raised by parents, grant money and Madison Education.

Shirley also said, kids learn the best when they are having fun.

“It just works with how they naturally learn and they’re so excited about it they don’t want to put it down, they never look up and say do we have to keep doing this?” said Shirley.

The school is also working on conduction teacher meetings through podcast.
