Ways to increase student and parent accountability with technology

Technology in this day in age is very expensive especially has more and more kids have access to tablets, phone, computers and assistive technology that goes beyond the classroom doors. Some ways to increase student and parent accountability with technology is to create a contract of understanding between the student and parent that outlines their responsibilities and commitment with having that piece of technology the other thing that I’ve done is to help train parents in technology sensitivity and awareness trainings to help parents be more involved in the monitoring and accessing of information. I also create a check out for my students to fill out when they are taking a piece of technology home and will communicate with the parents to make them aware of their child checking out the technology.
