Canisius High School in Buffalo says it's the natural evolution of education.  The private Jesuit high school for boys has become one of the first school in Western New York to invest in strategic one-to-one computing. 

This means both teachers and students are using iPads as an integral part of the daily learning experience. 

WBFO's Marian Hetherly talked with representatives at the school, who say the iPad is stimulating engagement, creativity and efficiency.
