Now that our students are allowed to bring their personal web enabled devices into the classroom, education in my classroom has become more immediate and much more fun for the students. We had to make up some rules about when, how and why to use these items and the kids had a lot of ideas for these that showed they had some good basic values.
Having read blogs from other teachers, I realized that these rules had to be established immediately and reviewed often. We actually sent a letter home and so that they would take ownership of the process, I had the students primed for reading and explaining it to their parents/guardians. Note that students who did not have a device on a particular day had access to one of eight other devices in the classroom.
