Did you know that 94% of Americans under the age 45 have a personal learning device that could greatly enrich the way teachers teach and students learn? Unfortunately, many schools and districts ban student-owned learning devices. In this session we'll discuss how to embrace these powerful learning tools and discover how doing so can enrich student learning - even in schools where they are banned! Using a sensible and progressive 5-step plan, along with a basic, text enabled cell phone, will allow participants to experience a wealth of tools such as Wiffiti, Poll Everywhere, Ipadio, Voki, WeTxt, and more. Stop fighting and start using students' most loved device - the cell phone!
