Columbia, SC (WLTX) -- The high school students of the Lexington-Richland District 5 will have new technology in-hand, starting this fall.

Called the iFive Project, the goal of the school district is to equip students with the opportunity to think critically, problem solve, communicate effectively, and collaborate, all while using 21st-century tools.

The District is purchasing the iPad Minis for all high school students, and will assist Lexington-Richland 5 in their goal of transforming to a Device Adaptable Technology System (DATS) over the next three years.

The District will maximize the integration of the iPad Minis, side-by-side with students and teachers using other digital devices supported by the school's IT infrastructure, all with the intent of providing teachers and students with the significant advancement of their learning opportunities.

Upon completion, the DATS program will allow all students to have a personalized learning device that's tailored to their individual education needs.
