While I like considering ways to use cell phones in schools, I think it is also important to present the "other side" of cell phones in schools. This is an interesting news broadcast on You Tube that discusses the concerns over having cell phones in schools. One interesting concern is that students are recording teachers "behaving badly." While I do not condone recording anyone without their knowledge, I think that teachers should also be mindful of their behavior and maybe these videos have done them a favor (to see themselves in a different light and to be aware of their negative behavior in the classroom). Either way, this video is definitely food for thought.
