LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) – Lakeville school superintendent Lisa Snyder says she’s happy with a report that shows the district’s investment in technology is paying off – but she’s not surprised.

An iLearn Research report says that 23 of the roughly 30 classrooms or programs that did research on new iPads last year showed an increase in student engagement. Twenty-four reported that student motivation went up, and 20 saw gains in learning.

Teachers who wanted iPads had to apply for a district grant, and have a plan to incorporate the device with students.

Snyder says the report’s outcomes were likely affected by teachers’ enthusiasm to use the iPads.

Reports say that at a board meeting last week, two board members said they wanted more student-achievement data to measure the program’s success.
