The case study examines teachers’ perception of the use of mobile phones to enhance learning. Data was collected from an Arab Israeli Private School at the north of Israel. Interviews were conducted with teachers and administrators to examine teachers’ perception of students utilizing mobile phones in school and the effect on policy and decision making. Findings indicate that teachers know they can’t prevent students from bringing mobile phones to school and instead of fighting the phenomena they are trying to utilize the device to promote learning and communication. This leads to the need to review the school policy that prevents the use of mobile phone in school. Additional findings with regard to the use of mobile technology, such as developing professional development will be shared.
