What do you think - using Cell Phones in class?

I found this great article published by The Detroit News showing how some schools are allowing students to use their own cell phones in class for instructional purposes.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
There is also a great video that is quite inspiring to see.

  1. I had a very small middle school summer school class and I did allow the students to use their smart phones to Google vocabulary words. In a perfect world, the phones would be a great addition to the classroom but realistically, too many students would be tempted to stray into cyber la-la land.

  2. Yes, good points... I think it depends on the class. :)


Thank you!
