AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) - Three schools in eastern Georgia are testing a program aimed at further integrating technology into everyday classroom experiences. Richmond County Technical Magnet School, Hephzibah High and Dorothy Hains Elementary are each 100 percent wireless, which has helped the schools launch the "Bring Your Own Technology" initiative.
Students in some classes are allowed to use their cellphones and laptops for research, and are asked to submit homework assignments via email. Sources reported Monday that the school district is looking to expand the program to all of its campuses if each of them have full wireless Internet capabilities by August. School officials say students who don't have smartphones or laptops will still be able to use desktop computers and other devices provided by the schools.
