US News & World Report Spreads the Word About Empowering Students to Use Cell Phones

Listen to this article. Powered by

US News & World Report is 
helping empower students with the freedom to learn with the tools they love with a story 
this week called Teachers Use Cell Phones in the Classroom.  In it they feature the story 
of why Teaching Generation Text co author Willyn Webb isn't telling her high school students 
to put away their cell phones, even though they are technically banned in her district and 
why I support this practice.  

The reporter shares ways we are both using mobile devices to support learning. 
 He also shares our mantra:
"School should be preparing students for real life—and in real life, people use 
cell phones. If you're making an artificial world inside the school, you're not 
preparing them for the real world."
