Boston Globe Putting iPads in Public Schools

The Boston Globe announced that a digital pilot program that will put 75 iPads into public school classrooms in Boston and Stoneham, Mass.

According to Robert Saurer, the Globe’s director of customer experience and innovation, “We believe that digital kids turn into digital adults.  We want to provide easy, portable access not only to our content, but to the greater world of content on the web — deployed in the classroom daily, streamed live, as the kids are learning.”

Wicked ‘smaht’ move by the Globe and the wave of the future, for sure.  Better to have kids reading the Globe, or any newspaper, on an iPad rather than no newspapers at all.
