The 21st Century Principal

Recently, I found myself entangled with several people in a Twitter debate about whether BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies actually perpetuate or aggravate the digital divide our students currently experience. Having a BYOD policy would seem to perpetuate the divide between the tech-haves and tech-have-nots. Still, we do need to be concerned about the effects of the digital divide under our BYOD policy.


This Trick Will Make You Twitter Famous & Why It Matters

The Innovative Educator

They are also the tags that allow me to become famous on Twitter and can help you too.
