Mobile Phones in the Classroom

This is reblogged from EDIM. I was interviewed by Mr. Hocking about my experience using cell phones in the classroom. This article is based off of my previous post, “Teaching with SmartPhones.”

Jennifer Carey is the Director of Educational Technology and High School History Teacher atRansom Everglades School in Coconut Grove, Florida.  She graciously granted me a 30+ minute interview via Skype on the topic of cell phones in the classroom.  To further engage myself with this week’s theme of cell phones in the classroom, I conducted the interview and typed up this blog post on my cell phone (#bonuspoints @teach42).  I did, however, record it in GarageBand on my MacBook Pro so that I could go back if I missed anything.  I’ll have to look into a good mobile phone recording app.

The reason I chose Ms. Carey for the interview is because of this article I found when I was searching for people to interview.  She seemed to be quite the advocate for using any technology in the classroom.  As a matter of fact, she attended the EdTechTeacher iPad Summit in Boston, MA this past week.

The first question I asked was, “What prompted you to try using cell phones in the classroom?”  She responded by stating… Mobiles in the Classroom.
