The concept of what we are focusing on is explained here.


So far in class we discussed some of the ways we can incorporate cell phones into the classroom. We also discussed some of the negative aspects of the assignment.

Rick emailed us links about the ethical side of cell phone use.
Texting and Driving, a Terrible Mix
Distracted Driving: What You Don`t See
Putting Distracted Drivers to the Test Video
Oprah`s No Texting Campaign

To go along with Rick's idea of "multi-tasking" I found an article about a gender divide in how people behave with technology. Research: Less Girl Game Time Down To Multitasking Behavior With Tech

Mobile devices are becoming more and more common and it something that we need to address. To give an idea of how many phones the world uses take a look at The Shocking Demographics of Cell Phone Use.

I (Sam) blogged about using cell phones in the classroom and tweeted out asking for other teachers to comment and share ideas. If anyone in the class has twitter and wants to help out with this, you could tweet out a link to my blog post or ask about cell phones in the classroom.
