MISSOULA- Students are busy learning math and English from their iPads in Dan Beaudin's fourth grade class at Lowell School.
Lowell School is this season's first One Class at a Time recipient to receive the $250 check from Montana's News Station and Allegiance Benefit Plan Management.
The fourth grade teacher will use the money to purchase applications for his student's iPods.
The math and English apps will not replace any class instruction, but will become another platform for students to learn.
"You give a kid an i-Pod and they know exactly what to do. You just make sure they're where they're supposed to be and they know exactly what to do, how to use it. It's basically a 21st century manipulation," Beaudin said.
