“When you hear the term ‘texting’ you probably cringe a bit. Or you think about texting while driving. Or maybe even how students will sneak texting in below their desks while a teacher isn’t looking. That’s not the case for 8th graders at Roosevelt Middle School in Bridgeport CT. They actually encourage texting. They’re using a new web app called StudentPositive that lets teachers use smartphones, tablets, and computers to notifiy students about when they’re doing a great job or not.”
