When the class of 2016 enters Mother of Mercy High School this fall, each of the 135 freshmen will receive a new iPad. That's part of the school's mission: to help students access the technology best suited to their needs, according to Linda Behen, the school's library media specialist.

At Mercy, an all-girls Catholic school in Cincinnati, OH, they call this "tech-agility," says Behen (pictured). She helped support a spring 2012 pilot in which 20 current freshmen received iPads.
