"tune in , turn off" chat transcript

Hi All,

Here is a link to a live chat transcript that was sponsored by Ed Week that, according to moderator Kevin Bushweller, was, "about how educators are dealing with the constant influx of new technologies, such as iPods, that students are bringing to school. Should schools embrace the presence of those technologies and harness their powers for learning? Or are there good arguments for schools to restrict the presence and use of such gadgetry?"

I think you'll enjoy this exchange. I was impressed with Alan W's ability to keep refocusing the conversation on what matters most.

What do you think?

btw...the link above may require a registration on ed week, but if you are interested in this topic you really should register, if only to get access to the annual "Technology Counts" editions.

Jim :-)
