Waco ISD celebrated an enormous gift of 21st Century teaching and learning tools at four elementary campuses beginning Tuesday, November 3. A multi-million dollar ConnectEd grant from Apple has provided an iPad for each student at Bell's Hill, J.H. Hines, Kendrick and Provident Heights. Smiles were plentiful as the state-of-the-art learning tools were distributed to the students by their classroom teachers following pep rally type events at each school. In addition to providing devices for students and teachers, Apple assisted in upgrading wireless connectivity at each campus and provided professional development for the teachers to effectively integrate new technology with curriculum.
