The Tech Master

The Tech Master can easily show you how to program your iPhone or keep the household network up and running, but is much less successful putting those technological temptations aside to buckle down and study.

Homayoun's Tip: Tech Masters may insist that using the latest gadgets will keep them up-to-date and take up less space. I have never seen a junior high or high school student effectively keep track of homework and other activities in a PDA like an iPhone or Blackberry, for one main reason: distractions. If your child has a PDA and likes to use it, he should still use a written planner to track his homework, longterm assignments, and tests and quizzes.
