I came across this article about students in Temecula, California being allowed to use cell phones in their classrooms, with teacher permission of course. I continue to be encouraged to read about innovative school systems who are taking a leap of faith to take advantage of the technology many of our students are carrying around in their pockets. I think, given the current economic times, BYOD makes a lot sense. Apparently not everyone agrees. You have to check out the reader's comments at the bottom of this article. It's kind of shocking, but also enlightening to realize BYOD might be an uphill battle, one worth fighting, though.
