The aim of school administrators at Ingleside Independent School District was to take the next step into the 21st century as they assigned and gave out 1,000 tablets to students.
"It's time for Ingleside to take that next step and prepare them, because every job has some type of technology in it, and we just want to make our kids more competitive when we did that," Ingleside ISD Superintendent Troy Mircovich said.
It's all part of the district's new Digital Learning Initiative. The Kuno tablets they gave out are Android based, and were given to students in 7th-12th grades. All curriculum and textbooks will now be handed out to students electronically.
"I think it will be easier that I will carry this around instead of having a whole bunch of textbooks, having to take all those home," 10th grader Kirk Reeves said.
"I think it's going to be really cool because the teachers are going to be sending our stuff, and instead of having to go through textbooks, they can be sending it all to us," 10th grader Brianna Smith said.
"It's going to be really different, and it's a step into the future," 11th grader Ross Porter said.
Educators at Ingleside ISD say the reason they chose to buy the Kuno tablets is because the software installed on the tablet makes it hard for students to access any unauthorized websites.
