  • 2 years ago our students were mainly texting, listening to music, emailing and on facebook with their phones- now they are venturing out a bit and using the phone to call people, take their pictures and set alarms-the bad news is texting has also increased. I show a slight increase in the use of weather apps… probably wondering when they are going to have a snow day!
