Four schools in Georgia have received Apple iBooks as part of a roll-out that will equip 63,000 students with notebooks for the next four years.

The schools in Cobb County are spending $70 million on the laptop programme

There were some concerns from teachers who had been using Windows PCs and feared incompatibility issues, however, one teacher at Lassiter High School told News 11 Alive: "It appears that since it has a Word program that all our fears about lessons that we've saved and used over the years, it looks like it transferred 100 per cent."

Phone support has been set up for Cobb’s teachers to help alleviate concern and training is being offered.
