Using mobiles in classrooms

    We decided to expand our virtual education programs in teaching such as interactive learning objects that cover a specific topic, I would like to move to e-workbook that’s accessed on a mobile phone.
    I read about a total ban on phones in schools that was having a problem with funding cut backs.
    I thought that during this time of cutbacks we could use phone in a positive way.

    Internet search[/LIST]Iphones are great
    I'm interested in what other teachers do?

    Camera phone are great for photos with Bluetooth enabled Macs/PCs. No hunting for leads and it rare to find an uncharged phone unlike the cameras that always seem to be dead when you need them most xx

    We have a variety of cookers; I can never remember which have timers that go up in seconds or minutes. So recently I have encouraged pupils to use the alarm/count down on their mobile phone.
    They also take photos to prove to their family that it looked good before they and their friends picked at it on the way home!
    Photograph homework off the board - it doesn't get lost!

    Hi there, yes I use mobile phones in the department across all key stages and find it a great tool. Furthermore as professionals who are supposed to be teaching design and therefore being on the "cutting edge" its imperative that we do so. We use it to photograph any model making process and these images are copied into the e portfolio's. We also have a supplementary resource used to enhance both KS3 and 4 courses via podcasts, we even train other schools how to produce their own podcasts! Lead by example I say, we need to be atleast as media and technology savy as our students if not more so.
    Cheers
