Middle Schoolers + IPods = Increased Engagement

A middle school in Conway, South Carolina is using Ipods to increase student engagement.  Guess what?  It works.  You can read the short piece below.  I think the notion of increasing student engagement is a given at this point.  To all of those folks our there using mobile one-to-one technology, we need to do a better job of providing data to support the impact these devices are having on student achievement.   While money is getting tighter, my hope is that when the Common Core finally gets rolled out, folks that make technology purchasing decisions will understand even more clearly how important it is to connect kids with the type of technologies they have access to everyday outside of school.
