 Park Rapids Panthers volleyball team members boarded the bus bound for Wadena this week with more than tennies and uniforms. They carried their iPads, ready to complete homework, a Wifi system, right, having been added to the front of the bus. Some of the team members admitted to a bit of apprehension and resistance, initially, when they learned of the new learning tool they’d be using this year. Fear of losing them and learning the intricacies caused some trepidation. But now they embrace the system that allows them to email teachers with questions, check future assignments on calendars, read notes (without having to scribble them) and now getting homework done on the school bus. Hauling textbooks and working in dim light had been a hardship. No longer. “It makes homework more fun,” the agree. “The only drawback is when we forget to charge them.”
