Scholarship program to provide iPads to JSU freshmen
For the third year thanks to a scholarship program sponsored by the Mississippi e-Center @Jackson State University, all first-time, full-time freshmen of the fall 2014 class at JSU will be provided iPad Airs.
The iPads will be integrated into the curriculum to enhance the learning experience, and the tablets will save students money by enabling them to purchase electronic books for their classes.
The program will include training for students on the use of the iPad as well as faculty training focused on using the technology for teaching and learning.
The iPads are expected to be an incentive for students to continue their studies at JSU through graduation. Those who remain enrolled for four semesters get to keep the iPad for their personal use.
