Some BK students swap notebooks for iPads
A school in East Flatbush has launched a new program that uses iPads to help students improve their study techniques and liberate them from bulky textbooks.
The Yeshiva of Flatbush High School started the iPad initiative to make learning easier, as well as offer 60 lucky freshman students a chance to use the latest technology. Students say learning with the iPad will help them with college and beyond.
"It's much better because in 20 years, no one is going to be using pen and paper anymore," says ninth-grade student Helen Menashe. "It's an advance in technology."
In September, the school plans on buying more iPads for the freshman and sophomore classes.
