Want to improve student academic performance? There’s an app for that.

Hundreds of middle school students in the central San Joaquin Valley, Calif., and across the state—each with a school-issued iPad—are using curriculum apps for their classwork and homework.

Educators say students who use the touch-screen devices for class appear to be more engaged in their studies. Students can view their school work anywhere and eMail their teachers anytime.

It seems to be making a difference: Test scores of iPad-using students are climbing.
