Ironically a friend from out of state was complaining about her school requiring kindles and literly 2 hours later I get the technology in our school survery from DS school district. Lured you in with questions about school website and means of communication and then the bring your own technology. Alright first red flag survery only went out to parents who provided an email. Hello if they don't have an email I'm guess kids don't have access to technology at home. We are title 1 school and so aren't all schools in town. Just the discussion of uniforms hit purse strings so much and the district realize the number of students they would need to provide uniforms too would cause a budget nightmare, so how would BYOT work?!? And families most likely NOT to have the means cannot even give their voice and the ones who can't put themselves in someone else's shoes might not totally think this thing through.
My main issues where the cost, what if it gets broke (DS broke his ipod touch after 3 weeks) lost (again know how many times the DSi has gone MIA for a few weeks) and a kid doesn't need ADHD to get distracted by the apps most of these divices allow to be downloaded.
