VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Students at a Valdosta school are using some of the latest high tech gadgets.

S.L. Mason used money from federal title one grants to buy i-pads.

The money is given to schools with a high number of students who get free or reduced lunches.

Administrators say the technology gets students interested in learning.

"Student engagement instantly goes up," said Maggie Johnson.

"We go through an extensive data collection process," said John Davis, the S.L. Mason Elementary School principal. "We got through an extensive school improvement plant to see what our needs are and what we've tried."

Sallas Mahone and W.G. Nunn in Valdosta also got Title One money.

The three schools combined got more than $8,500.
