Barron Park Elementary School in Palo Alto was highlighted in a MIT Technology Review article for its use of technology at the school. Every fifth-grader at Barron Park has been issued an iPad to use for classroom work such as math problems, making videos, and other core cirricula.
Barron Park is the first elementary school in Palo Alto to pilot this program allowing each student to bring an iPad home to complete homework assignments.
“It’s simply amazing to see the level of engagement and excitement with the children,” says Barron Park's Educational technology teacher Smita Kolhatkar.
Tablet computers are growing in use in K-12 schools with the spread of digital text books and plethora of free educational software.
