MORRISTOWN - Students at the Morristown-Beard School are participating in a pilot program that brings iPads into the classroom.

Several students at the Morristown prep school were issued the tablet devices. School officials say they hope the iPads will enhance classroom learning.

School Headmaster Alex Curtis says students will be allowed to use the tablets outside of the classroom to explore the iPad's possibilities and be creative. No applications are blocked on the tablet.

"Students are going to have access to their fingertips that they wouldn't have before," said Curtis.

Students and faculty will report back their experiences and if the program is successful, school-wide implementation could be launched for the 2011-12 school year.
