Looking for ideas? Middle School Computer Lessons

Does your Middle School (JR. High) allow students to carry and use their cell phones during the school day? My school is currently trying this policy and I have a few reservations.

I do teach technology but I keep thinking that the bad outweighs the good. Here are a few reasons why:

-Uncensored content- The school has no say as to what students are looking at.

– Phone as a status symbol- Kids with more money can show off what they have.

– Devices getting lost or stolen.

– Use of the camera in a phone

-Posting on Facebook during the school day (Cyberbullying)

I do like the idea of then having phones but turned off and in a locker feels like the better solution.

I would love to hear your comments!
