Peggy_G says to (19:56:43):
I love that they can't say they lost their homework because they always have their cell phone with them.
Liz Kolb says (19:57:06):
@Peggy I agree!!
Peggy_G says to (19:58:23):
Jim needs to take his story on the road!! Districts would love to hear these first-hand experiences from a principal!
Liz Kolb says (19:58:34):
I'll tell him!!!!
Peggy_G says to (19:59:14):
Tell the teachers/principals to get started the same way he did! That is such an effective strategy!

Hey Liz!
I just FINALLY got the U of M Education hats and your book! I'm so excited to begin reading it and catch up on some of the radio shows... I'm also working on having my students create a 5 minute radio broadcast later this year, based on some ideas I got at the Allied Media Conference this summer, so it's good to know about blogtalkradio!

Take care and thanks!

I love the classroom implementation ideas that Dr. Rogers discussed. Our high school band teacher allows students to use cell phones to download and record music so that they can learn their parts.

Thanks for the great information
