Create/Design: How could Cell Phones be Used as Learning Tools in FL Classrooms

Cell phones are commonly banned in schools. While there are some understandable reasons for prohibiting cell phones, there are also some compelling reasons for incorporating them into classroom instruction. What are the possibilities?

Your task: Review the following resources (and others if you wish).
Then do three things:
1) Create a list of ways cell phones could be used productively in a FL classroom.
2) Design a sample lesson plan incorporating cell phones.
3) Draft a letter that could be sent to parents and/or administration explaining your rationale for using cell phones in class. Be sure to address
concerns they might have.
