Boston Globe gives iPads to classrooms, reimagines NIE for the digital age

The Boston Globe is giving iPads, projectors and free Boston Globe digital subscriptions to local public school classrooms in a digitally reimagined version of the Newspapers In Education program.

While they are much lighter news consumers generally and have largely abandoned the print news product, young people get news on mobile devices to similar degrees as older users.

In fact, most of the people (58 percent) who read news on tablets prefer to see a print-like reading experience, while 41 percent want a more high-tech interactive experience with audio, video and graphics. (more...)
