Is personal use of school-owned mobile devices (ipads, netbooks) ethical? (e.g. running netflix on a school-owned iPad after hours)

I don't. I'm to paranoid that they'll dig into it...like they can with email.

I don't have a personal problem with it, but it'd probably be best to have a policy that stated whether or not it was allowable.

OUr policy does not allow it. Further, our policy requires using only your district email acct. to be registered with Apple to use on device

In our district, a person cannot authorize a mobile device with an account created by an external email address- thus, a paper trail.

I not only don't have a problem with it, I encourage our teachers to do it - provided I haven't locked it down for security reasons. Why?

Because the more of that person's time they spend using that device, the better they get with it & can do great things with it in the clssrm

Moreover tech has a "life" of 3-5y whether its used or not. WHY not fully utilize a device in that time frame, rather than recycle hardly

vdub144: I agree with this.. if I want to be totally useful to my students, I also need to be aware of what works well with the device

use it fully so you learn what can be done and how to

vdub144: Amen!! When we stop making people paranoid, they'll be able to relax and actually *learn* how to use the technology!

You know the saying, "Emotionally locked; learning is blocked." Goes for adults, too. We, in education, continue to hold ourselves back.

Kevin H said it best, "Innovation in education dies from domestic abuse." That MUST change. Thank you, Dan!

I get caught up with the same situation as I am using school iPad but want to purchase some apps.

this is just fine. A teacher needs to treat it as their "own" to see what it can do.
