Clever Use for Modern Technology

Hannah, age 13, has an email account. It’s rarely used. In my ongoing effort to watch over her and keep safe online, incoming messages are copied to my email box. Midday, I saw a message allegedly from her arrive in her inbox, and took a peak.

The message was entitled “homework” and this is all it contained:

clever use for modern technology

She snapped a picture of her homework assignment with her iPod and emailed it to herself so she’d make sure she had all the details.

I thought, “How clever is that?” What I could have done with this technology in the 1980s!

Now, if she’d only snapped pics of the requisite pages in her book we’d be all set because she forgot the book in her locker.

    That’s very cool. My 9th grader’s teachers suggested that we parents take phone pics of their white boards on registration day, so we’d know what supplies to buy.
    What struck me from your photo is that the school is still using REAL chalkboards! Awesome. Go Maine. 🙂

      Yup. They may have the old fashioned chalkboards rather than white boards, but each junior high student has their own computer to use in class!
