As one interviewed teacher stated, the goal of technology use is for promoting achievement, and not to use technology for the sake of technologys availability.

The Center for Education Policy and Law at the University of San Diego has tackled such concerns in its Electronic Communications Devices (ECDs) Project. Educators will find the following resources from the project of particular value to help control student misuse of ECDs on and off campus:

Free speech and privacy dimensions of student misuse of their own electronic communication devices; Mode school district policy governing ECD use; Model student discipline rules ; Resources for learning about student use of electronic communication devices.

The University of San Diego's Center for Education Policy and Law's report includes a short and a long version of a sample student-use agreement for "electronic communication devices," or ECDs. Both versions attempt to answer five key questions.

What Qualifies as an ECD?Cellphones, computers, pagers, or any other decives that allow direct electronic communication or communication via social networking.

2. When do school ECD rules always come into play? During school activities on school time, or during school-endorsed activities outside of school hours.

3. What constitutes misuse of an ECD? Refusal to turn device off when told, damaging school-owned ECDs, causing an in-school disruption, using the device for cheating, cyberbullying, or sexting.

4. When can schools punish a student for misuse outside of school?When misuse causes school disruptions or harms students, teachers, or other school personnel in a manner that the offending student should have expected.

5. What are acceptable consequences for misuse?Device searches, verbal and written warnings, confiscations, notices to parents or law-enforcement authorities, extracurricular restrictions, suspensions and expulsions.
