Question of the Day: Do you think that portable devices such as smartphones, ipods, game boys, etc. have value for education? Should they be banned from school or used to enhance education?
I don't think that smartphones, ipods, and game boys have value of education. The are distractions and should not be used during school hours. Some people don't get distracted but some do. The only way they could be a value to education is if you are teaching how to program them or how to create them.
