While I saw this on the Global Edmonton news earlier this evening, I just read the story online. My first inclination is to reply with a comment, but that is not enabled!

Edmonton school encourages smartphones in classrooms

The story addresses one school that is encouraging the use of technology in the classroom, with students bringing their smartphone, iPads, Blackberries, and more. There are reasons why many people responded negatively to the poll about technology being in the classroom, but I’m going to stick with the positive use. It made me think of a video that I would like to share, “Pay Attention.” It is linked from a previous blog post, Pay Attention – Video. I think it is worthwhile to watch the news story and to view this video which was produced by a school district in the USA.
