Schools have a plethora of electronic devices for their students to help with their educational needs. However, after a period of time, these devices become outdated and the school districts are then left with a decision to make: Should they recycle or refurbish their outdated equipment?
DistrictAdministration.com featured information on this widespread issue and listed proactive steps to consider before deciding how to handle the devices. Joe Bavazzano, the Director of the ADP Center for Learning Technologies, located within the College of Education and Human Services (CEHS), weighed in on the decision-making process and in favor of recycling. He noted, “Around here, municipalities have a recycling day, and the districts sometimes take it on as a challenge to promote mindful disposal of electronics.” Additionally, he added that students are not always aware of these types of resources, noting: “These districts have less control over what happens to student devices, so it’s extremely important that students know what to do when their computers break.” Bavazzano is also an alum of Montclair State University, having earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 2015 in Television and Digital Media. He is also a current graduate student in the department of Educational Leadership and Higher Education.
