I'm only 30, but when I was in school we were still using pen and paper, and were barely enjoying Internet as we were one of the first high schools in my state to receive brand new Windows 95 PCs and we had dual 128k ISDN, which was amazing at the time.

Now news has broken out that the Los Angeles school board have signed a $30 million agreement with Apple that will see an iPad in the hands of each student in the Los Angeles Unified School District. CiteWorld have reported that the program will launch this fall, with 31,000 iPads being delivered to the district.

 

By 2014, this program will have expanded out to see 640,000 tablets delivered to all students in the district. The iPads that students will receive will have educational applications and other apps installed designed to help students with their studies. The program hopes to prepare students for the real-world by exposing them to technology that might not be available at home.
