Jacksons Food Stores and the United Dairy Farmers of Washington were thrilled to present an iPad Learning Lab to Jennie Reed Elementary School in Tacoma. 

Learning LabThe donation was made as part of the “Milk Builds Strong Schools,” campaign which set aside 5% of Jacksons gallon milk sales in Washington to fund the purchase of an iPad Learning Lab for a randomly selected school in the state. The campaign ran from March 13 through May 28, 2013.

The iPad Learning Lab streamlines the management of classroom sets of iPad devices. Each lab includes 10 iPad devices and a mobile cart that can store, charge, and sync up to 30 iPad devices.

 “Using this learning lab will allow students access to learning materials by bridging home and school technologies,” comments Darrell Johnston, principal, Jennie Reed Elementary School. “Also, iPad educational apps will encourage our students and teachers to view learning tasks in new ways that are more authentic to real world applications of touch screen technologies. Our sincere gratitude to Jacksons Food Stores and the Dairy Farmers of Washington for making this donation possible.”
