Cell Phones in the Classroom

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We know students have phones; they are on them constantly, so how do we develop ways to have students use their phones productively in class? No matter what people tell you, students are not as tech savvy as we think: they text, maybe tweet, Facebook and sometimes game. They do not see phones as tools for learning. For teachers, we need to utilize curriculum and develop classroom management strategies that help students to use phones productively. You will walk away with tested classroom management strategies that work along with lesson ideas and online resources that you can use with your students on their phones starting right away. We will also go over some of the legal concerns you will want to be aware of to keep your parents and administrators informed and involved in the process.

Activity Direcotr, Tracy Unified School District
One thing I learned early on from my first career is that life should be fun. I love what I do but do not make it my life. I have great friends and a great family. Most of my time is spent either with my family at home or helping out my students at school. I have become active in the Ed Tech Policy world advocating for youth and social media.
