District bans file-sharing devices from its schools

Story: Dist. 204 bans file-sharing devices from its schools

MP3 players, cell phones, iPods...these gadgets are not going anywhere. Schools are blaming technology for a rise in bullying, and using it as its scapegoat for this district-wide ban. Let's consider this idea- Maybe school is becoming increasingly boring because it is not adapting to the needs of 21st century students, so children are left with no other choice but to allow text messaging to distract them in class. The resources ARE available to connect with this culture, it's just a matter of convincing stubborn administration to implement these tools.
