From the press release:
Bookbyte, a trusted e-commerce pioneer and online bookstore, today announced it will launch a pilot project with Salem-Keizer Public Schools in Oregon to bring digital learning experiences to the classroom. The pilot project is scheduled to kick off this September in conjunction with the new school year. Bookbyte Digital, a division of Bookbyte focused on digital content and e-books, is partnering with the school district to deploy digital learning programs via Apple iPads to enrich students’ learning experiences, increase teacher productivity and provide learning analytics.
As part of the digital content pilot program, teachers and students at three schools: Hammond Elementary School, McNary High School and South Salem High School, will receive iPads from Bookbyte for classroom use to enhance the learning experience. The pilot initially will provide digital math and English curriculum to more than two hundred primary and secondary students. Some students will engage with the iPad in as many as three times a day.
