District officials in Scottsdale, Ariz., are considering allowing students to bring their own mobile devices to school to give students more access to technology for learning purposes. "For many students, they have much more access to technology at home than at school, and this would be one way to bridge that gap," district technology official Tom Clark said. However, concerns over security, infrastructure and appropriate-use policies must be addressed before such a policy can be implemented, he added.
