  • For the past six years St. Paul High School has provided their students with laptops.  The students have found it very convenient to have their own laptop for notes and other things in the classroom.  This year, though, the board and administrators decided to provide iPads for the freshmen.  Classroom teachers also received iPads and have had several in-service hours over the iPads.

    Students all agreed that they love the iPads, but they are a little more difficult to type on and also they do not have a compact disk drive, so that is inconvenient.  But they also like that they can access apps and connect with each other’s iPads in the classroom.
