In the photo above, two first-grade students at Chicago Public Schools' (CPS) Burley Elementary help each other with their assignment — to copy a totem pole image from the Web, place it in their iPad app, resize it and write a few sentences about the image.
Since the iPad has made its way into several CPS campuses, teachers and administrators have seen just how easy it is for students to collaborate using the device. And they've seen other benefits too, as shown in our iPads in the Classroom video and story.
