New Class(room) War: Teacher vs. Technology - New York Times

"We can try to fight this, I suppose, as many schools are. Or, we can try to inculcate appropriate use from early on by modeling our own cell phone use to access infromation and learn throughout the curriculum."

 

I remembered seeing this article and almost could not stop myself from laughing.  This is yet another example of someone, in this case the media, who does not understand the application of technology like this in the classroom and does their best to try and focus on the negatives.  But I agree with you that by placing this on students from the forefront of their educational careers, there would definitely be a much less likely chance of this becoming a distraction.
