— The Northwest Kansas Technical College use of iPads has garnered the Goodland college national attention.

The Hays Daily News reports the Fast Company magazine named the technical college one of its "5 Technologically Decked-Out Schools You Wish You Went To." Other schools on the list included Duke and Stanford.

Apple also recently spent a week in Goodland, filming a documentary about the school's use of iPads.

The college's Chief Information Officer Ben Coumerilh said he couldn't give too many details about the documentary, other than to say it will be used as a marketing tool for how Apple's products can be used in education.

Northwest Kansas Technical College began giving each of its students an Apple iPad in Fall 2010.
