Please share your ideas and resources for creating successful K-12 policies for cell phone integration in curriculum.
1) Create a social contract with students by talking with them BEFORE integrating cell phones. Come up with rules and consequences for cell phone use together.
2) Create rules based on what business's (the real world) creates for their own employees. You can easily get sample contracts on-line to took at.
Getting Teachers Interested:
1) Start with projects that do not include bringing cell phones into the classroom, but still connect them with learning (such as students using their cell phones to audio record an interview for homework or even extra credit/optional projects). Also make sure the tool used on the cell phone is something that the teacher is comfortable with (most often it is a basic phone call, so take advantage of that first).
