I am attending my first online conference (of sorts) this week. It is all about cell phones in the classroom, and so far, it has been well worth the time. One interesting conversation today was if cell phones should still be called cell phones. There seems to be a camp that wants to call them mobile devices (or mobiles for short). I asked my students what they thought, and they informed me that they should be called “‘cells.” Anyway, it still got me thinking.
There is a rockin’ research paper that I want to share, but I am writing this on my computer that has no links saved, so I am going to have to share that in the future. For now, I will just share this cool video. It came from the conference. It is pretty well done and has some good info on using phones as instructional tools in the classroom.
