LEBANON, Ind.– Another school is doing away with those heavy textbooks and going completely digital!
Lebanon High School has given every student a brand new Apple MacBook Air. The computers have some restrictions, such as accessing social media sites.
Students will be able to take the laptops home and use them for their lessons. Many students said they are excited about the switch.
“I could be the first one to tell you,” said Miranda Dafoe, a senior at Lebanon High School. “My mom would weigh my backpack when I’d get home and she’d be like ‘you know that bad for your posture’ and whatever, but yeah, I think it’s great that we’re going digital.”
The superintendent said it took three years of planning to get to this point. The high school also expects its IT department to handle the laptops, each one valued at more than $1,000.
