New iPad minis are already proving their value in some eastern Kentucky classrooms.

Schools in Clark County were awarded $22,000 in December to use as staff saw fit, and Central Elementary decided to buy 32 of the devices.

Central Elementary Principal Lisa Smith told The Winchester Sun that the iPads help students engage in school work. For example, she said it has allowed 4th graders to collaborate on math problems with students at Conkwright Middle School.

The devices also have a program that works like Facebook, but is geared toward education, and a program that monitors behavior.
