The Forman School is piloting a technology program of Apple iPads for student use on campus. The program was funded by a $50,000 grant from Margaret and William Hearst III. The Hearsts are the parents of William D. Hearst, a 1998 Forman alumnus. iPads are Apple tablet computers designed primarily as a platform for audio-visual media, including books, periodicals, movies, music, games and Web content. Apple released the iPad in April 2010. All of the built-in apps (computer programs) are designed to take advantage of the computer’s large touch screen. The school’s Information Technology Department was able to expedite processing of the iPads to distribute them to faculty within two days of their arrival.
