RICHLAND, WA - Most people use iPads for email or surfing the internet, but a Richland high school teacher has his students using the technology with a hint of Hollywood.

Kids in Nick White's U.S. Government classes are shooting and editing short movies about constitutional amendments, all on iPads.

White says the tablets make quite a difference as a teaching tool. "Kids love using the iPads. It's interactive, it's engaging, it's hard for them to tune out when there's a screen right in front of them with all the capabilities that are there, so they love using them. They would probably beg me to use them more if I let them."

This is the first year the students have used the iPads in White's classes, but he plans to include them more, and in many different ways.
