Today’s education system is evolving to take full advantage of the potential of mobile technology devices to inspire learning and create independent, critical thinkers. However, with tight budgets, many schools are hoping to bring technology into the classroom without the costly burden of purchasing a device for each student. One potential solution that is being explored is BYOD, or Bring Your Own Device.
Common Sense Media is in the initial stages of a new program we’re extremely excited about: Learning Ratings for Educators (a program we call Graphite). Graphite is a free online service that helps K-12 educators discover, use and share the best digital learning products (websites, apps and games) for their students. We’ll be launching this new website in time for back-to-school and we are looking for teachers to provide feedback during our final development phase. If you know of any teachers that may be interested in participating please share the attached Graphite flyer. As we are still in the initial phase, we are not sharing this with a large population so I’m trying not to send it to a large list serve but targeted individuals.
