There have been a number of threads occurring in the VLN about this topic already:

In addition:

How is your school developing Digital Citizenship and/or Acceptable Use Guidelines? Are we clear what we mean when we talk about them?

    Here's an interesting blog post from the 21st Century Fluency project, exploring the policy of 'Bring Your Own device (Jason Ohler).

    An excerpt:

    Our choice for our children: Two lives or one? That is, do we expect students to live a digitally deluged lifestyle outside of school, then unplug when the bell rings? Or is it time to help them integrate their digital and non-digital lives into one healthy life based on a single identity, and talk about their technology in critical terms so that they become the kind of digital citizens the world needs?
    I say it is time to help them pursue one life. And to do so, I say we brand BYOD: On/Off.
    Are there issues with this? Of course. There are always issues with technology. After all, technology connects and disconnects—always. Most notably, there are three issues that vex us:

    1. How do we keep kids safe when they are online?
    2. How do we keep them on-task?
    3. How do we address those who can't afford a device?

    What do you think? On - or off?
