Apple iPads are “transforming the way teachers are teaching,” said Jean Tower, Directory of Technology for the Northborough-Southborough School District, late last year.

At a presentation to the the Southborough K-8 School Committee in December, Tower and School Technology Coordinator Patricia Lally talked about the impact the popular devices are having on students and learning.

Lally said iPads are used at all four Southborough schools for everything from math work to science to reading, and the devices are in high demand.

“They are used all the time. People are just clamoring to get their hands on them,” Lally said. “They have such a huge impact on student learning.”

On Monday, March 18, representatives from Apple Computer will be at Algonquin to talk with parents and members of the district’s Technology Advisory Committee about the effective use of devices like iPads in schools. The public is invited to attend. Here are the details:

On March 18, 2013 we will be hosting speakers from Apple Computer, and they will present information about successful school one-to-one technology initiatives. After they share success stories and key elements that impact successful 1:1 programs, there will be time for questions and answers.

We will meet at Algonquin High School in the library.

Please join us – all members of the communities are welcome to join the Technology Advisory Committee for this presentation.

7:30pm – 9:00pm
