Got an interesting email from South Georgia mom Donna on BYOT. Read her email and tell me what you think!
Ok so I officially don't like the BYOT “Bring Your own technology” for the schools systems this year!!!! All I've seen is status updates on facebook and twitter from students during school hours.....and that means kids are not learning.
First off, I dont' see sending my daughter to school with something that is probably gonna get stolen. Then "I" would end up being the one buying another one.....not the thief or school or govt or anyone else!
Where does all the grant money from the state go to? Just for salaries? What happened to providing what you need through the money from the state and our taxes for technology?
Why are we doing BYOT only to exacerbate the problem of kids spending time on social media instead of doing work in the classroom?
I’m not targeting one particular school so for the sake of argument I’m Donna from South GA.
