BALTIMORE — Technology will be a big key on whether or not schools will be able to teach our children this fall.

Now a college is helping out.

Walden University has given out 650 tablets and 300 learning kits to both teachers and students in Baltimore.

They say these learning items went to students and staff at Beechfield and Gwynns Falls Elementary schools.

While the university is based in Minnesota. The donations are part of the university's national push to help schools in need.

"Social change is who we are. It's what we have been built upon. It's who we are, so passionate about the learning experience and making sure that our community has what it needs to be successful."

Baltimore is one of several cities they're helping out in. They say they've also helped schools in Tampa and Houston.

Their next assistance project will be in Atlanta.
