Scattered across the desks in one of Yorktown Middle School’s social studies classes are colored pencils, blank paper maps and iPads with sturdy lime green cases. Students have a map pulled up on the devices and are using it to create their own color-coded version on paper. It could have been a lesson from 10 years ago, or 20, but instead of squinting at a slide projector or flipping through a textbook the students each pulled up a map individually. In another room students read through worksheets on the iPads, some writing in short answers with a stylus or index finger instead of typing. A couple have headphones in, but most are working together to find the right answer. One by one they are called up to meet with the teacher.
