ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) -- Digital learning is becoming more of a reality in one North Alabama school system. Albertville City Schools is working to make sure that their students are getting the best education possible, and one that will keep them ahead of the curve in today's technological world.

"They've got resources that we never had and those are continuing to grow," said Terry Freeman with Albertville City Schools.

An additional 300 iPads are being deployed this year throughout the school system. The technology staff said it's important that their students are able to learn visually. "It gives the students a way to relearn anything they missed, if they were out, whatever the case may be," said Trent Jordan, a recent Albertville High graduate and now an employee of Albertville City Schools.

Terry Freeman said it's not just about keeping up with the latest and greatest, it's about having happy, excited, and engaging students. "They love it, they love it, we have a classroom across the hall and you can tell when they're going to be working on iPads because you can hear the roar of cheer going on."
