Most of the time, it's an excuse for children to figure out how to dress and behave and get into the adult world.
But between all the emotional dramas, there will be occasional learning, although the antics are the same, the courses are comparable, but there are many ways for students to get information, very different-this is largely due to individuals (
In the third entry in our "How do children do it now" series, the wires observe three devices that are changing the meaning of the class, "How do students interact with teachers, and what to learn in today's classroom-good or bad.

Meirav, a senior high school student who attends New Lille High School in Winnetka, Illinois, also uses tablets in class as part of the iPad pilot program.
At first, the school lent the ipad to the class in question and shipped and collected it with a trolley every day, but now students buy or rent personal equipment.
Meirav said she likes to use the iPad in English class because she can download text through iBook instead of buying physics books, but she doesn't like the iPad in math class.
"It's a bit difficult, sometimes the app doesn't work, it's hard to browse, and you don't have a personal feeling about online math books," she said.
Joel also thinks the iPad is very helpful in humanities classes.

Of course, the Associated Press is talking about mobile phones.
In the past decade, few technological advances have changed the classroom environment than mobile phones.
"We actually have a rule that phones should be turned off . . . . . . [but]
Trying to enforce this is more distracting than it is worth, "Leaf said.
That's the reality of today's classroom: it's more troublesome for teachers to use smartphones angrily than to tolerate them.
It is given that students will have mobile phones and use them in class, and the school district has turned to what Ye calls a "reasonable approach" where teachers decide on cell policy in classby-Foundation of the classroom. (
Like New York City, in areas that have not performed well in the futile struggle with mobile phones, there are quite unique business opportunities. )
For most teachers, this means obeying the collective will of the students.
According to Leaf, "The children have a really general feeling that they are not doing anything wrong if the teacher says something [
About their cell phones.
The teacher is a dick. ""[
If the teacher says something
About their cell phones.
The teacher is a dick.
"This means that when a teacher goes through a PowerPoint presentation, students usually take out their phones in class, send text messages to friends or check Twitter.
Kids are always doing more tasks at school right now, with one eye staring at what they should learn and the other staring at their cell phones.
But the distraction factor is not the only one.
As mobile phones become more intelligent and more common, cheating becomes easier and easier.
As early as 2009, more than 1 out of 3 students cheat using their mobile phones, this number may increase.
The popularity of telephone-
It looks like enabling cheating depends on the score.
One of the middle school teachers we talked to had little problem and no suspicion of phone cheating, but Leaf said he didn't even take risks: "That's a standard I'm giving students now, when I went to give them an assessment, one of the instructions I gave them was that taking your phone out of itself would be enough to invalidate the test.
I don't need to prove you cheated, just take your phone out and it's enough to void it.
"There is also the way mobile phones change student/teacher relationships.
"I 've never texted my teacher, but I know people who do that.
I won't say texting your teacher is a normal thing . . . . . . However, I do have a friend who is very close to one of her teachers.
They will send a lot of articles about academics and individuals to each other, "said Emma, who is now a sophomore.
Taylor, who is now a graduate student at Syracuse University, told Wired that she herself texted her teacher in high school and also knew that others were texting, although it has never turned to personal or inappropriate.
Ye said he received text messages from students "15 times a year" and he kept the conversation very short and strict.
He made it clear to the students that texting him was "not for carelessness"-but if a student had a problem with his homework on Sunday night, it was usually easier to process it through text than by email, and better than students who don't do their homework at all.
However, the occurrence of problems does not always require the actual occurrence of inappropriate behavior;
Even the potential is enough.
"Sometimes you get a little nervous because it might be explained in some way or another," says Leaf . ".
"When I first started teaching, I was told never to stay alone in the classroom with a girl . . . . . . This rule is easy to follow. Now it’s hard.
Now that you have all these electronic rooms that you can't access, you may not think of them. "(Remind 101)
When the case becomes too personal, a rare situation occurs.
"For a teacher suspected of having an inappropriate relationship with the student, there was a situation that ended badly and as evidence, the text message condemned the evidence, which the above-mentioned middle school teacher told Wired.
Of course, there are ways to bypass the threat of misconduct.
Apps like reminder 101 allow teachers to send one-
Send text messages to students and parents, all numbers are kept confidential.
Reminder 101 clear: teachers sending text messages to students is a "safe way" to maximize the convenience of mobile phones while eliminating risks.
First the blackboard, then the whiteboard, now the SMART Board.
Tell the teacher about a computer screen that is basically interactive.
The idea is to give students a technical enhancement lesson to introduce Internet and computer applications while never leaving the front board.
The only problem is that most teachers treat them as fine whiteboards.
When it comes to smart boards, the Leaf representative region describes a "one size fits all" mindset.
Regardless of whether the teacher wants it or not, it is possible that their room will be equipped with wooden boards.
More and more areas are turning to the method of "every classroom has a smart board", which is a gorgeous feather for a school, at least on the surface.
But the board has spent thousands of dollars and most teachers are under-trained in how to actually use the board, meaning the easiest way to do this is to open a blank notepad document and use it onlyerase board.
This is another case of technology. in-the-
The class had the best intentions and the results were disappointing.
Nevertheless, the technology of the school has not fully realized its potential.
Asked what was in her backpack, Meirav gave a surprisingly old backpack
She says she still uses binder, theme notebook, and graphic calculator, which is more preferred than the calculator app.
Meirav doesn't sound like she will necessarily choose to use the iPad in class, she says "you just need to keep up with the times.
"Joel, on the other hand, seems to accept the rise of technology.
"Our generation is so committed that we have more responsibility," he said . " Some children thrive and some are with them.
"Leaf has a similar view of technology in the classroom.
"I think a lot of people today can be more for themselves. task," he said.
Adding these second screens in the classroom usually means that he will attract different attention from the students.
While this may not be a new phenomenon, it seems much easier for children to check out a lesson now.
