A story on Scotland’s The Herald today reports that one Scottish teacher’s union wants iPods banned from schools. “The NASUWT annual conference in Peebles heard that use of gadgets in class created a persistent problem of low-level indiscipline,” teachers said yesterday. Scottish president Bill Scott goes even further and says that make-up should also be banned. “No-one needs games or musical gadgets. Rather than spending money on an iPod or a make-up bag for their children, parents would do better to give them a pencil case.” Along with iPods, the union wants mobile phones and other electronic devices banned.
