Culver Community School Corporation’s One-to-One Technology Initiative is receiving some positive attention, and Principals Albert Hanselman and Julie Berndt informed the board this week of an upcoming presentation hosted by Apple to allow visitors from other school corporations to see the iPad initiative in action. According to Superintendent Brad Schuldt, the event will give visitors a chance to talk to Apple representatives regarding products, services, and their costs, as well as speak to Culver employees regarding the use of the technology and get an idea of the major successes and problems with the program.

Schuldt says the school has been visited by six other school corporations that wanted to learn more about their use of technology, and this event will help enlighten other schools on the possible benefits and common problems associated with the program. The event will take place in February, and boasts a full agenda, including presentations and a question-and-answer session.
