It’s time to spotlight our third 2013 grant winner. Crofton Jr./Sr. High School won a $5,000 grant from Great Plains Communications to help purchase new equipment for the school’s iPad lab.
The funds will be used to purchase eight iPads, heavy-duty cases to protect the devices, a MacBook Air and programs for the devices. The funds will also help cover more than 100 new applications for use in the classroom.
Crofton is another example of a school that is integrating mobile technologies into their curriculum. Great Plains Communications has helped dozens of schools create wireless networks that allow students to use tablets, laptops, and video-learning as part of their studies.
