How would you like to increase learning with "screenagers" by using one of the mediums they most enjoy - cell phones? In this presentation, we will take participants through the seven essential building blocks for success when learning with cell phones and other mobile devices in the classroom. Participants will find out if they are "smarter than a screenager" and learn how to catch up if they’re not. They’ll also be introduced to effective tools for measuring teacher and student success when learning with cell phones. We will share samples of appropriate forms and policies used by real educators who are effectively using mobile devices with students. Participants will leave this presentation with the building blocks necessary to stop fighting and start embracing the successful use of cell phones in the classroom.

Very informative.

Using cell phones creates much more access to technology as 94% of American households have access to cell phones and as you probably know, most students have one in middle and high schools across the nation. By embracing them as tools and using the ideas in the 7 Building Blocks they are more manageable and thus there are fewer challenges! Trying to ban them doesn't work and the discipline issues are stressful for all. Managing them as learning tools, setting the stage with successful policies and permissions, etc. makes them a usable learning tool and less of a challenge. For more on this check out the webinar or Teaching Generation Text: Using Cell PHones to Enhance Learning (Jossey-Bass, 2011) .

Would the increasing use of cell phones in school create more access to technology or cause more challenges?
