NEOSHO, MO.--- Kindergarten through second grade students are now using a new E-Spark Program on classroom iPads. The program consists of different lessons based on an individual learning level. Students take quizzes and use apps that target the instruction they need. At the end of a lesson, students record a video of themselves describing what they've learned. 

"It provides us with an opportunity to really, really target that instruction. So the iPad's aren't just basic gaming devices, they're actually being used for instruction. And that's the most important thing. To put tools in front of kids that are going to help them become 21st century learners," said Mandy Lybeck, R-5 Instructional Technology Specialist.

According to administrators, Neosho is the only school district in the state using the E-Spark Program.
