It thought it was interesting that parents are supporting students on this issues. I wonder if it's because they want to be more constantly connected to their kids--helicopter parent-style--or if it stems from a genuine desire to have their kids learn how to use technology "for good," i.e. practical, educational uses.
Speaking of "stem," I also was intrigued by the statistic that students who use technology in their classrooms are more interested in STEM careers than those who do not. This makes sense because incorporating tech-friendly approaches in students everyday life will probably make them more comfortable with logical, mathematical approaches to tasks.
Overall, the article was informative and gave me useful statistics to ponder as I continue to try to navigate a tricky balance between supporting technology in classrooms and not alienating principals in the process.
