21st century technology to tell Noah Webster's story
You can't find "iPad" in the dictionary yet, but hand-held tablet computers will soon be in use at the 18th century birthplace of Noah Webster, creator of the first American dictionary.
Introduction of iPad-guided tours is one of many strategic plan-based projects funded by a three-year, $225,000 grant by the Hartford Foundation to the Noah Webster House and West Hartford Historical Society. The strategic plan, which seeks to broaden the museum's education outreach and base of support, was developed with an earlier grant from the Hartford Foundation.
