Don't know if this will help but a few things I am doing this year to involve students and technology are:
1. Tool Scavenger Hunt- I give them a list of tools and they have to take a picture of the tool with their phones (you could use cameras). Then the images are downloaded in to drop box. This also works nice so I have an image database of tools in our shop. I just randomized my inventory log from the summer.
2. QR codes. I have students make free Qr codes on QR Code generator - create QR Codes (for free) [logo, business card, vCard, t-shirt, mug] - goQR.me . They have to type in a description and rules/safety procedures for the tools. Then we cut them out and put them on the tool. Then I have the students do a safety scavenger hunt where they use their phone to read the QR code and fill in a description and safety for each tool.
Don't know your schools policy on phones but my students really enjoy getting to have theirs in class.
I like these ideas. I'll try with my pre-service class.
