Students find ways to cheat using technology; some schools banning iPods

Banning baseball caps during tests was obvious -- students were writing the answers under the brim. Then, schools started banning cell phones, realizing students could text message the answers to each other. Now, schools across the country are targeting digital media players as a potential cheating device. Check out the rest of the story by going here. Is this a problem locally? If not, will it become a serious enough problem that we should worry about it here? Or if a student is determined to cheat will they find a way no matter what and we should just leave well enough alone? After all, they're only cheating themselves, right? Or are they? It's interesting food for thought.
