As the “Students Come First” Technology Task Force begins its meeting this morning in the state Capitol Auditorium, facilitator Lauren Morando Rhim reminded members to turn off their technology items, like smartphones, to focus on the business at hand. A committee member, Keven Denton, suggested a change to that: Rather than turning off technology, some members will want to use it to take notes and the like, he noted. Rhim agreed, and amended her instruction: “It's use technology appropriately so it doesn't distract you from the task at hand,” she told the group.
