First some schools started to ban cell phones after discovering students could cheat by text messaging answers to each other.
Now, schools are banning digital media players, realizing they too are being used as cheating devices where students can download formulas and other materials. During exams, students are hiding these players under clothing, and behind the ear.
What do you think? Should they be banned or would rules be a better solution that wouldn't strip students of its benefits like increased motivation to study, recording lecture content, and using it to download educational material? (I know it particularly comes in handy for learning foreign languages)
