I'm interested in hearing from anyone who is currently using, or thinking about using cellphones as part of integrated classroom technology. Anyone?

Hi Gary... I train staff on ways in which they could use Mobile phones sorry... :)... "Cell Phones" ... in the classroom and to support teaching and learning generally. There are some really interesting developments with the technology and the potential for improving learning is very exciting. In the UK, they the government have funded colleges for the last 2 years to develop new initiatives for using mobile technologies for teaching and learning. There are some very good case studies as a result.

Hi, Adam, Thanks for the reply. The case studies you mentioned, are there websites I can find so I can read them?

Hi Gary,

We have quite a few projects going on the use of cellphones in the classroom in OSuth Africa. Here is my report on Dr maths on mxit (learners use it for maths homework help- see Lauries report on her project there) http://maggiev.edublogs.org/2008/08/24/dr-maths-on-mxit/

I keep all my cellphone links here: http://delicious.com/maggiev/cellphones and my m-learning links are here: http://delicious.com/maggiev/cellphones+mlearning

I would definitely love to use cellphones in my classroom some day. I think they would be an awesome asset to a foreign language classroom. Like we have abbreviations in English while texting, I think it would be cool to have students text each other using abbreviations in the Spanish language. Then they could share their conversations with the class and have other students make out what they are trying to say. I think this would be a cute and fun classroom activity. Not only would it permit students to practice the language but they would learn a little more about the culture by understanding the words and abbreviations that they use. Has anyone else used a cellphone in a foreign language classroom? I would love hear the feedback!
