15 September 2012 In, “Schools embracing, not banning electronic devices”, Lisa Reicosky shows readers that the “B.Y.O.D” program that is spreading to schools around the Canton area may not be the smartest idea to hit local high schools. The article that appeared in “Canton Rep” on August 15, 2012 explained the several benefits of this “Bring your own device” program that allows students to use laptops, smart phones, tablets, etc., in the classroom for strictly learning purposes only. Along with the program comes many trials and tribulations. The “B.Y.O.D” program may stick to the everyday lives of high school students, or it may not.

She not only went into great depth of the pilot program, but she also used a variety of quotes and facts from local high school staff and students.

There were not traces of her being bias towards the topic of discussion. She played a middle role and simply gave the facts. I found the article informative and it helped me better understand the pilot program and what it is trying to achieve with high school students. Loy 2

One being the fact that not every student can be trusted to be using his or hers smart phones, tablets or laptops for

    Brittany Miller Psychology 201 – 09 Instructor: Mrs. Maruyama Toddlers using electronics The thought of purchasing a 500.00 Ipad or some sort of electronic for a 2 to 5 year old I find to be quiet ridiculous. I understand the point that they want the toddlers to learn how to use technology at a young age and teach them how to handle things with care. It makes sense if they had the children using theirs but going out and actually buying a 2 year old their own is quite outrageous, what all…
