Cell phones: The Secret Learning Weapon:

Tired of fighting for the attention of your students while they surreptitiously text their friends about their boredom? How about asking them to take their phones out to learn? They know how to work them better than you AND there are so many educational functions they probably aren't even aware of. Learn how to use smart phones in your classroom to create and complete projects. Turn them on and tune them in to the power of learning on their phones.

Use Twitter chats to engage whole classes in discussions and eliminate the conversation that happens between you and two eager students in your room. Use instagram and video functions to shoot footage for projects - edit them in iMovie. Work on documents using Google drive. Maintain your student publication using Word Press and get to play with other free apps that will enhance classroom learning.
