Examples of Cell Phones in the Curriculum

From Thursday's technology coordinator meeting, my colleague at Heartland Denise Krefting presented on how to use cell phones in the class room. With her was Susan Hope (communications teacher from Waukee) and Crista Carlile (science curriculum supervisor for Des Moines), both of whom demonstrated how they have used cell phones in the classroom.

All three shared several good applications, as we had a chance to test them out during the meeting. For teachers looking to experiment using cellular technology, this was a good discussion of what to think about.

By the way, the UStream streaming recording worked very well. Unfortunately, my camera skills are embarrassing. In an attempt to get my camera close enough to the projector to see text, I managed to not be able to film Susan.
