    I completely agree with this. Certainly not everyone keeps up with or likes technology. Of all people though, it seems to me that teachers are some of the most critical people to keep up with technology.

    How are teachers supposed to be able to prepare students for the "real world" when the students know more about the real world than they do? Don't get me wrong; I'm all for learning fundamentals, as well. But there is a place for learning practical stuff. But if teachers don't learn new technology, it's clear it becomes a "problem" in schools rather than a solution or teaching aid.

    Cell phones, in general, are tools that people should know how to use and know what they can do with them. Calculators were banned in schools for the longest time before math teachers started training students on how to use them to be able to progress farther and faster in math education. History does tend to repeat itself...
