What sort of message does this give...

The BBC reports that "Parents are being urged to keep Christmas gadgets out of the classroom by England's Children's Minister Kevin Brennan" and further comments are made by the General Secretary of NASUWT Chris Keates including "Teachers would be grateful if pupils just brought a pen." Take a look at the report

What value does this put on the digital technology that excites, engages and empowers young people, permeates their lives
and the creativity that it enables.

The message seems that pen and paper is the way we do it.
When you get to school you can stop thinking about these things and use a pen. Education is about using pens and writing things down!
