Get ed tech into classrooms

Oh, will all administrators and principals who are reluctant to accept the fact that technology is here please read this article:

Education Technology: 7 Ways to Bring Apps, Gadgets, Online Services Into School Classrooms

I have heard of principals and administrators stating how teachers "should NOT text or email students.  And if we do email a student to copy the email to a parent."  They then go on to say something like when we were in school teachers communicated with our parents with out cell phones and  facebook......

Ok, they are correct, but my contention is they couldn't communicate that way because the technology  was not even thought of yet! 

Let's get into the 21st century, please.
