NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY/AP) — A Norfolk elementary school has been selected for a grant to outfit the students, staff and classrooms with Apple, Inc. technology.
As part of the White House’s ConnectED Initiative, Berkley Campostella Early Childhood Center will receive iPads for every student, MacBooks for every teacher and Apple TV for every classroom. Apple is also giving the school software, technical support and professional development help.
President Barack Obama announced the ConnectED Initiative last summer, which aims to connect almost every student with high-speed broadband by 2017. Apple, Microsoft and several broadband providers have donated millions in resources to the initiative.
Berkley Campostella is one of 114 schools nationwide selected for the program.
