Milton school taps future of education
An interesting experiment is playing out this fall at Milton Middle School and attracting the attention of educators near and far. Every student in the school’s seventh and eighth grades has been equipped with an iPad.
Sure, other schools elsewhere in the country have so equipped students, but this is seemingly a pioneering project for districts in our neck of Wisconsin. It was the focus of a Gazette story by reporter Neil Johnson in Friday’s Gazette.
What benefits are teachers seeing in this advance that might soon become the norm in classrooms here and across the nation? What are the possible drawbacks, particularly for taxpayers?
We’ll share our thoughts and pose a few questions in our editorial Tuesday.
