Willmar, Minn., teens attend boot camp on iPads they'll be issued at start of school year


WILLMAR -- Like many students, Nate Mittag didn't think the talk of iPads for Willmar Senior High students would become a reality.

So he and other students were pretty happy to find themselves holding their Apple tablet computers Monday in the high school theater at the first iPad Boot Camp.

Nate, a senior, was there with his parents, Doug and Shannon Mittag of Willmar. "It's going to be interesting to see how they fit into school," he said.
