Downside to technology

Our school has discovered the downside to technology during the past two days.  We use an automated bell system so that the bell schedule changes on Wednesday for the early out.  No one has to mess with it.  Unfortunately, someone made a change that resulted in having a lock down drill go off instead of the first bell for lunch which tells us we have 5 min to lunch.  my kids don't mind it  as they are allowed to sit in the corner with the iPads and have been having fun trying out various educational math games while we wait for the all clear.
On the other hand, I am trying to use the CILC or Center for interactive learning and collaboration which has some nice topics with which to supplement and add to a students learning experience.  I will let you know how it goes tomorrow.
