Anne Arundel County students just got the green light to bring their cellphones to school and use them in class.
The county's board of education approved a revised technology policy Wednesday. Teachers and students will get more freedom use cellphones and other devices in class for learning.
The previous technology policy was on the books since the early 1990s.
"Our policy was very outdated. We were living in a policy age where we weren't allowing cellphones at all, and technically we were supposed to take them from students and bag them and tag them, and those kinds of things. That's not the reality of 2015," school spokesman Bob Mosier said.
