Technological Challenges

Unrestricted use of IPads and IPhones in the classroom offers challenges for teachers.

  • Chat functions, games and texting offer chances to collaborate, opportunities, often very tempting ones, to “”digress” from the area being studied, and they offer chances to take learnings to higher, or broader, or, simply, different, levels.
  • Connectivity is an issue with IPads and IPhones, and the uncertainty of continuous server connections makes it desirable to make backup lesson plans using other media.
  • On-line learning platforms that are used in correctional settings must have the capability of disabling chat and texting functions, for the safety and security of inmates and the public.
