The LA School Board of Education has made a $30 million pact with Apple. According to this contract, all the kids studying in schools in the district will get free iPads by the end of 2014. This is to complement their educational activities. Also this step is being taken to get them ready for the experiences they will be facing when they graduate. The initial drive is to hand out 31,000 tablets to the budding boys and girls.

Ultimately, 640,000 of the iPads will be distributed among the young ones who hold the future in their hands. The program includes in its purview 47 campuses. These iPads will have many learning resources already loaded on them. The Pearson Common Core System of Courses, Apple’s iWork and iLife will be some of the applications which will feature on the tablets.

The Los Angeles School Board of Education will be funding the preliminary 31,000 tablets according to 9to5Mac. It will of course look elsewhere for some cash to book the rest so that justice is done to all the kids in the district. Computers and an online presence have become the watchwords of today. The future too belongs to those who are tech-savvy. So in order to prepare these youngsters for their adult status, this handing out of Apple tablets is taking place. It will make them more competent and digitally wiser citizens.
