It looks like TCDSB is going down a similar path as TDSB, pointed out in this conversation with Dean, although one can only guess at this point. (I’m sorry if I’m a pessimist)Â There was a request for information on the â€œUse of cell phones and other electronic devices on school property .â€œ
The survey itself is available on the TCDSB web site. I was particularly troubled by the reference to iPods, MP3 players and the likes.
The problem is not with the tools but old practices meeting todayâ€™s student. You can always turn off a phone or iPod, but by banning tools that students use everyday are we preparing our children for tomorrow or yesterday?Share and Enjoy -
