Give a kid a new type of technology and it seems they’ll take to it like fish in water. This has proven to be the case at one area elementary school for children as young as 5 years old. Gladbrook-Reinbeck Elementary School started offering Apple iPads for students to use in the classroom this fall and so far the response has been positive. The iPads are used for extra math work, taking accelerated reading tests and other activities that would ordinarily tie up an entire computer. “I can get things done in 20 minutes instead of two hours,” said kindergarten teacher Nicole Creswell.
