Freedom with the Ipads
Students having Ipads next year is obviously going to present some new problems. It is a lot of freedom for students to have, and some questions have been raised regarding whether or not certain apps should be blocked during school hours. I can see where teachers are coming from with this, but realistically if kids do not want to pay attention then they will find some way to entertain themselves, whether it be on facebook or an app. Part of maturing as a student is learning to manage your time effectively and make smart decisions. Some kids will choose to abuse the Ipads next year, but a large majority will use this resource effectively.
