After LAUSD failure, Apple finds success bringing iPads into the classroom

Looks like Apple may have finally found some success in the classroom. The company has had a rough history in schools — in 2014 the Los Angeles Unified School District shuttered a program designed to give every child in the district an iPad, partly because students quickly found ways to get around restrictions, making the iPads more of a distraction than a tool.

This, however, hasn’t stopped Apple from continuing its efforts in education. Also in 2014, the company joined President Barack Obama’s ConnectED project. As part of this program, 114 schools in 29 states get grants from Apple — including a MacBook and iPad for teachers, an Apple TV for each classroom, and an iPad for each student. The real surprise? It seems to be going quite well.

According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple is treating this program a little differently. The company assigns an executive to oversee each school program. For example, Apple exec Eddy Cue oversees Yuma, Arizona. Not only that, but mentors spend 17 days per year at their school, helping with training and preparation, and offering a level of support not normally seen in such programs.
