Technology is a top priority this year at Bettendorf High School.
The high school's expanding their iPad program, which means
freshman, sophomores, and juniors each get their own tablet for the year.
Staff said an iPad for everyone levels the playing field,
giving every teen an equal chance at using technology.
There are other benefits too.
"Just trying to individualize some of the learning
process. You know we have students that
learn in very different ways. And so by
having some of this technology it allows us to address that," said Kristy
Cleppe, one of the associate principals at Bettendorf High School.
Next year the school will complete its last phase in of iPads,
freshman through seniors will all have them.
