If you could use a mobile phone in your classroom, how would you use it? If you have used a phone in your teaching, was it helpful? Did it encourage engagement? If you teach in a traditional college classroom, then there is a good chance that it did.
I find it hard taking phones in the classroom seriously. They’re so attached to the social realm of people’s lives that it feels like I’m trying to appease the masses if I try and use mobile technology in class. I did try a couple of times though without a lot of thought about genuinely constructive use. My attempts have been more of the throw-it-out-there-and-see-if-it-flies variety.
