We have started a research project - a great resource from TeachersPayTeachers seller Room 213 - that focuses on the question of electronic devices in class. Students did a great job creating a pros and cons list already, and in Station 5 were brainstorming what questions could be included on a survey or questionnaire to test students' attitudes about electronic devices in class.
More to come later as they keep researching... I was anticipating full support of devices in class, but our pros/cons chart showed me that students are wrestling with the question as well. I am excited to see what they find!
