Portland elementary school gets new iPads, AppleTVs

PORTLAND — Longfellow Elementary School has received nearly $4,500 for new technology.

The money, awarded by the Anne Foss Computer Curriculum Fund, will purchase six iPads and Apple TVs for the school, according to a Portland Public Schools press release. The technology will be used to improve classroom projection systems and as an alternative to more expensive interactive whiteboards.

The Anne Foss Fund, which is managed by the City of Portland, had $1,500 when it was first established in 1986 to support "computer instruction." In April, the fund totaled more than $7,400.
