Some educators in Olympia, Wash., schools are using iPad tablet computers as part of a pilot program aimed at using the devices to differentiate instruction for students. "We're really trying to get our teachers to meet the needs of the learner, and the iPads are able to accommodate that for different learning styles," Olympia High School principal Matt Grant said. Students use the devices in class for numerous tasks, including working on assignments, taking notes and listening to audio books.
