Daniell Middle School To Encourage Cell Use
The middle school is part of a pilot program that will allow students to use their cell phones and laptops as tools in the learning process.
As part of an experimental program to enhance the learning process, the days of teachers taking cell phones away from and disciplining students who are using their devices in class may be over at Daniell Middle School.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Daniell Middle School has been chosen to join Lost Mountain and Floyd middle schools in a cutting-edge educational program which will allow students to log into a guest network at school and use their devices as tools in the learning process.
"Trends are telling us that we cannot afford the model for public education that we have now," Cobb Superintendent Michael Hinojosa said. "We are going to have to change and adapt. These initiatives have the potential to fundamentally change the way we deliver instruction to students and put us in better position to lead the future of education."
