The Los Angeles school board signed an agreement with Apple in June worth $30 million that will see students in the Los Angeles Unified School District receive a free iPad. According to CiteWorld, the program will launch this fall with 31,000 iPads being delivered to the district. By 2014, the program will expand to 640,000 tablets, accounting for all students in the district. The tablets will come preloaded with educational applications and other programs to assist students with their studies. The program hopes to prepare students for the real world by exposing them to new technology that may not be available in their households.
