ZEELAND (WKZO) -- Every student in grades six through twelve in the Zeeland school district will have an iPad to take home this year for schoolwork, according to the district superintendent.

Zeeland schools are some of the many across the country that are integrating the Apple products into their classrooms.  Some school officials say the app technology allows for better learning, and gives teachers the opportunity to record lectures that students can watch any time.

Michigan schools are reportedly taking money out of their paper and textbook budget to pay for the electronics.
