Teachers who WANT cell phones in class

November 14, 2007

Why buy a clicker when you can use your cell phone?  Rather than fighting students and their text messaging addiction, some teachers are encouraging students to use their cell phones to get involved in learning.  Wireless software allows students to take quizzes on class content, detecting when a student "has it down cold" and moving on to new topics.  Phones can also be used to distribute audio, and even video.
