New Book! "Cell Phones in the Classroom"

Finally! My new book is coming out this September called Cell Phones in the Classroom: A Practical Guide for Educators! It is once again being published by ISTE. I am very proud of this book. First it has over 16 different cases of K-12 teachers integrating student's own cell phones into classroom learning. Their stories are inspiring! Second, it includes many practical lessons plans to integrate student cell phones (any kind!) into classroom learning. There are over 50 FREE web resources featured that couple with cell phones (any kind, not just Smartphones). In addition, there is a step by step guide on integration including examples of permission forms, AUP changes, and mobile safety. You can pre-order at ISTE or Amazon! I look forward to hearing your feedback on the book!

I'm SO EXCITED to hear about this!!! I was granted permission to test cell phones in the classroom a year ago and your first book "Toys to Tools" was like my bible!! Can't wait!

I talked up both Toys to Tools and your upcoming book during my poster session on mobile devices in the classroom. My colleague Karen Bryer and I constrasted our uses of mobile devices (K-5 vs. middle school; school-provided vs. BYOD). It was clear that ISTE attendees are extremely eager to find out more about using mobile devices. I'm looking forward to getting more ideas from your new book also!

Cell phones would be the best teacher I feel! I mean whatsoever doubts you have, can easily learn through mobile phones. You do not have to delay on like the way our teacher does. Thanks for the post indeed!

Cell phone must be keeping silent mode because it will disturb the whole class room, and students concentration will be affected by the cell phone usage.

Congratulations! I can't wait to read this.

Mobile Prices said...

Really a very good thing specially for the students in their learning.

Martin said...

You are a step ahead of most school boards by suggesting we integrate them into the classrooms instead of banning them. My kids are not quite old enough yet but I'm pretty sure I'll have them on some sort of pay as you go. For sure they will take them to school. I'm reading this book just so I can give detailed reasons why my kids should have their cell phone.
