Bill Promotes Electronics Usage in Classrooms

A proposed law that will require Oregon School Boards to develop policies for use of personal electronic devices like Ipads and Smartphones in the classroom is headed to the Governor for final approval. Senator Mark Hass says bill allows students to use their own Smartphones or I-pads, but it does not require them to use their own devices or buy them to participate in classroom activities.  It also tells districts to find out if textbooks and other instructional material is available online for free.  If approved by the Governor, the policies must be set by the 2014-2015 school year.
