Mobile Phones in the Classroom

Posted: September 24, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s amazing how far mobile phones have come in the past few years.  I remember my first mobile phone–it was big and clunky and the only thing it did was make phone calls, which is what it was designed to do.  Now, most days my phone is also my personal computer.  It stores files, surfs the web, emails, tells me how to get places, and also makes phone calls.

All that power in one little device.

Does that powerful device have a role to play in our classrooms?

Here are some tips from teachers that are trying to harness that power!
