Rapid expansion in adoptions and use of mobile devices in schools has the potential to impact almost every aspect of education. A new report, "Mobile Technology for K-12 Education," sponsored by mobile learning company, Amplify, and conducted by education market research experts at IESD, reveals details about the current status of mobile technology in our schools. The question is, what are publishers and developers who serve the school market doing in terms of their product marketing plans and their sales approaches as we move away from the a textbook centric K-12 sales environment to an environment where smartphones, tablets, and other mobile computing devices are the primary delivery envelope? Host Glen McCandless asks K-12 market researcher, Jay Sivin-Kachala, of IESD, to provide his perspective.
Employers are not the only ones demanding social media passwords – schools are doing so too. There has been lots of media attention about this – resulting in a surge of legislative activity on the issue. In Illinois, a new law went into effect this year allowing school officials to have access to passwords to students’ social media accounts in certain situations. The concern, of course, is how this impacts a student’s right to privacy under the Constitution and state laws. This podcast with Kelly Anderson will explore the new law and how it could affect your children.

Do schools belong in churches? Should publicly funded schools be allowed to rent space in a church?
Discussion is based on the following article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/11/us/when-charter-schools-are-in-churches-conflict-is-in-the-air.html?src=xps
The Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) Program is the largest school based father engagement program in the nation with over 4000 schools participating.
Live from Brunswick County, North Carolina, we will be talking to Pat Litzinger, Congregations For Children District Coordinator, Harbor District, NC Conference of The United Methodist Church. Many churches are reaching out to the public schools in their community outreach. Watch D.O.G.S. provides an opportunity to organizations within the school community including churches to serve local children without "re-inventing the wheel". Of course local school policy and practice dictates how this is managed, but the Watch D.O.G.S. program is a great foundation to build upon. We will also be joined by New Hanover County, NC Commissioner Jonathan Barfield and Top Dog Coordinator, Scott Diggs.
Each week, WatchDOGS Radio host Keith Schumacher and co-host Chris Danenhauer discuss how this program is impacting families and schools across our nation and in four foreign countries.
Please join our audience and call in with your questions and comments.
On this episode, we will be speaking with Barbara J. Newman, from the CLC Network. The CLC Network has provided support for including people of various abilities in faith-based schools, charter schools and churches nationwide since 1979.
