Coachella Valley Unified makes way for high-tech kiosks

Six-foot touchscreen kiosks, which look like man-sized iPods, will soon pop up in east valley schools, bringing a high-tech twist to the classic campus bulletin board. The kiosks also promise to tighten campus security by automatically calling the police if a gunshot is detected.
