Spirit Lake students wired for the school year


SPIRIT LAKE, Iowa (KTIV) -- Spirit Lake Community Schools are logging on to the future of learning.

Last Tuesday, 5th through 12th graders got their very own laptops.

It's all part of the schools 1 to 1 technology program. Over a thousand laptops were handed out to students. They'll have a new one issued to them each year.

School officials say the program will redefine the way students learn.

 "I think it is going to make a difference. It's not as much about the laptops, but it is about changing teaching and learning, and we think the tool that we have in place now is going to help develop learning opportunities for that 21st century education," says Spirit Lake Superintendent David Smith.

The school says over 3000 people showed up for the event.
