Stop fighting and start embracing the power of cell phones for learning by becoming aware of and ready to use many FREE cell phone tools such as Wiffiti, Poll Everywhere, Twitter, ChaCha, iPadio, Voki, group texting & more. Cell phones are student-loved devices that can be used to enhance learning.
Participants will:
-Learn a 5-Step progressive plan for using cell phones in education.
-Become aware of the effective uses of cell phones professionally.
-Learn how to strengthen the home-school connection.
-Become aware of how cell phones can be used for homework (even in schools where they are banned).
-Gain experience using the tools during the session.
-Take home a get started guide with links and steps for getting started with each of the free tools.
-Experience examples of effective AUP, permission letters, privacy and boundaries procedures, and successful classroom management plans for when cell phones are used in class.
-Understand how cell phone tools support research-based instructional strategies.
Leveraging technology that staff and students know and love is motivating for all. The five-step plan provides a progression that enables educators to sensibly use cell phones for learning in a way that will make sense for students, their families, and themselves. More and more schools across the country are rewriting policy and providing professional development in order to harness the power of cell phones for teaching, and for learning. The result is increased communication, 21st century skill development, and enhanced lessons.
