Two days ago, Aug. 22, 2017, The Kirkwood Call’s Twitter account posted a poll asking, “Would you rather have your own laptops or iPads at KHS?” The final results of the poll indicated 90 percent (595/661) chose laptops. When the poll was released, there were unanswered questions about the brand and features of these products. Here are the answers.

 

  • The laptops will be Apple’s Macbook Air, and the iPads are Apple’s 5th Generation iPad
  • The amount of storage on both devices is 128 gigabytes. This contains eight times more storage than the current iPads.
  • iPads will come with a keyboard and durable Logitech CREATE case.
  • Macbook Airs have a display screen of 13 inches, iPads are 9.7
  • Both devices will have iOS 11
  • Dr. Havener said students will receive the new technology in late October to early December upon school board approval.

 

Tweet #iPadKHS or #MacBookKHS with why you chose your selected product.

    I seriously love how you hooked me into reading it and you followed into it it wasn’t basic it was followed up with student tweets and pictures of the polls thanks for the visuals. 🙂
