Wow. What a great graphic that illustrates the discord between what kids are asking for and what schools are giving them. Interesting statistics, too. So many schools do completely ban the use of technology, which could really be detrimental to our students' progress if we don't start to adapt.

One-third of middle & high schools kids want a way to communicate with their teachers electronically.And I think 63% of students want online textbooks with communication facilities..

Great illustration! Students these days are very techie. I am not really against to the thought of educating students through the use of technology but parental guidance and proper supervision is needed to secure them from any misleading and inappropriate actions.

With the advance of technology life has become more busy as well as too fast. Because of fast communication things happen very quickly.Well advantages as well as disadvantages both are on same line.

Thank you so much for posting this blog on information about cell phones. I really like this image that shows what teenagers want in a mobile device. I have a daughter who will almost be a teenager and she wants a cell phone for chirstmas. What would be a good cell phone store in texas to go to? Thank you for your help!

The infographic message you are trying to portrait is very interesting. I agree with some of your points of view here. Somehow, I do believe that aside from the benefits we are acquiring form this cell phones, there are also disadvantages of using this. For example, many students are using smartphones to cheat when they're having exams on schools.
