Hello. Just a quick show this time but a very timely topic. On April 13th when I got home from school I found a note from my wife that said I was to call a TV news station in Knoxville, Tennessee about a story on a school banning i-pods. Since I have no connection to Knoxville and had no knowledge of any school banning i-pods I was curious about the intent of the call. It turns out they had learned of my use of "studycasts" in class and wanted a counter point when they did the story on the Anderson County school board banning i-pods on their campus. Check out the links below for a text version of the news story from WATE television news in Knoxville, Tennessee along with a link to view the video of the news story.
What do you think about a school board banning i-pods or MP3 players entirely from school grounds? Leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
