Ok – I’m with you with on the iPods…but cell phones …in my classroom???


I actually met a high school principal in Ohio last week who encouraged his teachers to tell kids “Turn your phones ON!” when they come to class. Not as in start making all sorts of phone calls, but as in let’s learn how we can use our phones (since just about every student had one at his school) to extend what we’re doing in class.  - post by willrich Will Richardson http://www.weblogg-ed.com/

He goes on to say…: 

He goes on to say… We can try to fight this, I suppose, as many schools are. Or, we can try to inculcate appropriate use from early on by modeling our own cell phone use to access information and learn throughout the curriculum. Will Richardson http://www.weblogg-ed.com/

Bottom line…: 

We have to somehow find strategies to teach our kids to use cell phones and computers and the like in effective ways, and we also have to bend our thinking a bit in terms of what we ask our kids to do in classrooms in the first place. Will Richardson http://www.weblogg-ed.com/ Bottom line…

Here’s a way to model Next time you catch a cell phone in your class do the following – ask the student to: Take a picture of a rhombus somewhere on campus with their cell phone camera and send it to you Interview a Veteran and send you a link to their podcast Text you three significant quotes from your area of study Record a ring-tone of an musical innovator… From 1963 Watch cell phones suddenly disappear 
