An anonymous donor recently gave the Coal City school district an iPad for use in its special education classes. That donation, on top of a recent Coal City District 1 Foundation donation of money marked for the purchase of more iPads, puts the district in a good position to begin introducing educational applications and a new way of instruction and learning to district students, according to its Director of Business Services and Technology Jason Smith. “The iPad has been called the backpack of the future,” Smith said. “It allows them access to textbooks, a calendar, documents they’re working on, teachers’ sites. . . It can give them access to all the things they need to be successful.”
