VIDEO: Expand the Classroom

December 06, 2012 By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist

We take another glance at the impact of new technology in Minnesota schools, especially tablet computers.

The Farmington Schools District is providing every K-12 student an Apple iPad. Charles Duarte, head of instructional technology, says even with a lot of focus on the device, it's still about the learning.

They hope to take advantage of a new crop of iOS educational apps, like Schoolology, that extend the classroom for students and expands what teachers can offer.
