OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- Administrators at schools across Wisconsin are trying to putting high-tech devices in the hands of every student and teacher.
Oshkosh Northwestern Media reports the Oshkosh Area School District wants to join nearly 40 other districts that have a one-to-one technology initiative connecting teaching to personal devices. Some schools let students bring their own devices, saving the districts money.
School leaders say new technology helps prepare students for a high-tech global economy. They say students can watch lectures at home and come to school the following day with questions about assignments.
The Oshkosh Area School District will ask voters in an April 1 referendum for $1.4 million to integrate more technology into the classrooms.
