Images: Cell Phone use in Classroom

Posted by & filed under Education, Mass Media, Sparks, Technology.

Some educators have policies restricting usage of cell phones at all times in the classroom; this is completely understandable to maintain academic integrity for memory recall quizzes and exams. However, there is an alternate approach that encourages students to utilize tablet devices and data-enabled phones during learning activities to take advantage of the technology with which they are most comfortable. Here are some images you can use to discuss this trend:

    A ‘smart phone’ is a ‘tiny computer’ that can make a phone call…if we allow computer use in class, why not the ‘tiny computer’? I have started to allow students to use the computer side of their phone in class to enhance learning. So far, so good!
