An article by Troy Goodman in The Birmingham News notes that 41 grade six students will have to give up their school-issued iBooks on the last day of school this year. The students aren’t too happy about giving up their Macs, but school administrators are happy with the pilot program’s results. “Most teachers saw not only significantly increased class time on computers, but also improvements in attendance. They mentioned that students seemed less distracted and got more work done on time, and there were fewer disciplinary problems.” The program is slated to continue into the next two years and could expand to all sixth-graders in the Vestavia Hills school system.
