Using the resources you have

In a time of budget crisis, this is one of the best arguments for allowing students to use mobile devices in class:

District leaders want students with devices at home to have the option to switch them on in class. That would free up schools’ limited number of Netbooks, iPods and iPads for students without access to them.

“We want to have a one-to-one (one device for each student) environment, but we don’t have a funding source,” Associate Superintendent Luanne Kokolis said.

Is your schools considering the same thing because of monetary restraints?
