Adventures with Cell Phones

Educational Leadership Volume 68, Number 5, ISSN 0013-1784


Teachers are finding creative ways to turn the basic cell phone from a digital distraction into a versatile learning tool. In this article, the author explains why cell phones are important in learning and suggests rather than banning them that they be integrated into learning. She presents activities that can be done on a basic cell phone with a camera and text-messaging capabilities (no need for a smartphone).
