Zeeland (MI) Public Schools have replaced textbooks with iPads -- one for every high-schooler in the district. That's 1,800 iPads between two high schools in the district. But that's just beginning. The district embarked on an ambitious project this fall that will give a tablet to every student in grades 3 to 12 — the only district this state to do so. The program represents one of the most aggressive in the country. The school uses the iPad for assigning classwork, testing and communicating with students. Some teachers have gone paperless. Just two weeks into the experiment, administrators already are calling the iPad program a game-changer.
