    I see a the future right now. Our shcool (high shcool level) has adopted a personal electronic device policy that allows the students to use their smart phones, tablets, and laptops in the classroom. Realistically students will never be banned from using their resources at work, so why limit them in the classroom? Currently the use is at the teacher’s discretion and there is a great level of respect for this privilege. The students can quickly research facts to support their argument in class, they can gather images for a project just by snapping a picture on their phone, and they can even respond to teacher generated questions using Poll Everywhere. And to me, we have just begun to scratch the surface. Just think if this progresses over the next few years the shcool technology budget can be used to amp-up the network, hire more Instructional Technology Coaches, and incorporate more technology based professional development!
