ROSWELL, Ga. — Teachers at Holcomb Bridge Middle School are “students” themselves this summer, as they incorporate another technology tool into their arsenal to fuel learning and engage students at the local middle school.

Principal Joy Schroerlucke provided new iPads and a how-to book to each teacher, in order to stay ahead of the curve as Fulton County continues to advance its use of technology in schools.

Using iPads in the classroom continues to accelerate as educators see the benefits.

"We wanted our teachers and students to reap the benefits of these innovative mobile devices as soon as possible," said Schroerlucke. "We already leverage ActivBoards throughout the school. As a school of global classrooms, this is simply one more tool we can use to bring the world to our students."

Holcomb Bridge is also a Georgia School of Excellence and a Distinguished Title I School.
