The use of technology in lessons

Discussion in 'Headteachers' started by waynejones, Feb 18, 2012.

  1. Can i ask colleagues how you deal with mobile phone use in your classroom and is it possible make it integral part of your lessons ?
    Have you got a school policy in place to allow this technology in place.
    best wishes

    Unless you are familiar with the concept of "chimera" or "hydra" don't even think about it. The hydra was a mythical beast - cut off one head and two grew in its place. The potential upside is completely drowned by the downside - just imagine a classful texting away, rather than listening to you and you get the idea.
    Some teachers DO successfully make use of social media such as phones and other technologies; but they don't need to ask forum readers how to do it. Caveat emptor.
