Miami-Dade schoolchildren get iPads for language learning
Hundreds of Miami-Dade County public school students now have a new tool for success. Superintendent Alberto Carvalho, at Nova Southeastern University in North Miami Beach, presented 450 students this week with iPads that were purchased with grant dollars from a program designed to help students learn English. Miami-Dade is at the forefront of this new program called iWorld, which will provide global access for recently arrived, foreign-born secondary ESOL immigrant students. In collaboration with Pearson Education, Miami Dade Public Schools created a new curriculum to help the students learn English and through their new iPads they will be able to access the program.
