Los Angeles Schools Preparing Students For iPad Safety

The Los Angeles Times (3/21, Blume) reports on a new initiative in Los Angeles schools to teach students how to use their iPad tablets safely. The piece notes that the move comes after students at three high schools quickly disabled security filters last year, resulting in the tablets being recalled. The Times notes that the Los Angeles iPad program has faced criticism that the district made “mistakes, squandering dollars and rushing ill-advisedly into the digital future” in its $1 billion iPad program.
