Northeast Ohio schools welcome electronic devices to promote learning

Teachers in some area classrooms are welcoming students’ electronic devices as another resource for learning. Cellphones and other electronic devices, once banished to school lockers, are becoming part of classroom lessons in some area school districts. From pop quizzes through text-messaging to lab results loaded onto electronic tablets to looking up information on smart phones, teachers are finding ways to engage students with the latest devices.  “Technology is part of kids’ lives. It’s here to stay,” said Superintendent Robert Scott of Avon Lake, a district in its fifth year of building its wireless network.
