"Bring your own device is fine to have students provide their own tablet as opposed to the school having to maintain several laptops. I don’t like the idea of extending the “device” to include smart-phones. I don’t…"
"I liked the idea of kids discovering with their imagination. Some kids can learn from reading others need to learn by discovering. Those are the kids with the imagination to invent the technology that will be used to transform the…"
"Interesting. I especially like the idea of the AI handling all of the analysis and collation of data that is generated by the students. I don't know if I agree with the notion of letting the AI grade the work, but it would certainly…"
"I really like this approach. I inherited an art classroom 7 years ago, and I am still finding things that I didn't know about. I really like point 3, I have a steady supply of artwork that I post in the room and in the hallways, but…"
I completely agree with you about the distractions that accompany the percieved benefits of using a smartphone in the classroom. I know that for me it is difficult to sit and write a paper or do productive work without the temptation to…"

"I teach a computer engineering course and let me tell you that this article is very true. With new technology coming out every day and the upgrades of older technology every year, we have to stay on are toes and always research and read the next…"
"What a cool and interesting article. I have students with this issue even at the college level. Most of the time students without internet access at home or even without a home computer have plenty of resources that they can use to get around…"
"I really like these resolutions you listed from the article. I think one of the toughest things is going "outside the box" with technology. There are so many different responsibilities placed on the teacher and trying to experiment is just…"
"You? Going against what you are told?? Never Vicky! :) (p.s. I work with her!)
I think you summed it up perfectly about how students are so engrained in social media that we need to incorporate these aspects into our teaching to reach them.…"
"I think these are all great ideas. I love the idea of letting the students make a plan for learning something. I think the ideas they would come up with would be surprising. The tough part would be hard feelings by those whose ideas you…"
I agree with you on the pros and the cons. I think learning through investigation is great, but they have to be one step away, or they get frustrated before they make any progress. They also need to have developed perseverance, which…"
Presently, I am a Lower School Technology teacher for a private school, and I am an Adjunct Instructor for Wilmington University. I have the unique privilege to teach both elementary and graduate students! Fun!
