Sandra Hardie's comment, January 7, 2013 10:18 AM
I have students use their cell phones in class when needed to look up confusing concepts or words. It becomes a huge time saver that allows students to respond when they might not always do so with out the extra 'help'. The empowerment even a little know how (technology) affords ally makes a difference with the students.
Christine Baker's comment, January 7, 2013 10:20 AM
It is interesting to see technology work in a positive way. We are often on our kids for using their cell phones inappropriately, it is helpful to get some ideas for productive use.
Meagan Hudek's comment, January 7, 2013 10:57 AM
I think the use of cellphones in class is a great idea, as long as they are used appropriately. Students still need to understand how to research topics using their phones instead of typing an entire question into a search engine.

I agree that letting students talk about things with each other helps them teach and tutor each other, reaching each other in a way that sometimes the teacher can't.
Meagan Hudek's comment, January 7, 2013 11:02 AM
Talking out things can help a student understand material. It helps them have a one on one conversation instead of sitting in on a class lecture. The use of academic conversation between students can lead to future success when used correctly. As a teacher, this is something you should train your students to do that way when they are as to discuss class topics, they will.

Formative Assessments

If you can both listen to children and accept their answers not as things to just be judged right or wrong but as pieces of information which may reveal what the child is thinking, you will have taken a giant step toward becoming a master teacher, rather than merely a disseminator of information.
