Salesforce.com Founder Funds iPad Rollout in SF Schools

SHARING THE WEALTH: Back in October, Salesforce.com founder, Marc Benioff joined forces with San Francisco Mayor, Ed Lee, and Superintendent Richard Carranza to support a major iPad deployment for middle schools in the city. Benioff donated $2.7 million dollars through the Salesforce.com Foundation to provide 750 iPads to the city's 12 middle schools. Principals also received an additional $100K to invest in areas at their discretion. So far, it looks like SF Unified has learned at least one lesson from LA's botched rollout, as students are restricted from taking the tablets home. SFGate takes a peek at how the tablets are being deployed in Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School.
