Using mobiles in a classroom ...

Today  I had the wonderful privilege of speaking to a centre in Cambridgeshire. After years of educational establishments oppressing the use of mobile phones in class. They have taken the brave and wise decision to encourage their students to use their phones and all the attached tools they now come with to aide their learning.

Before your brain has a meltdown, inducing emotional incontinence. They set a simple rule that is entirely reasonable.

When the teacher says they can. So, the disruptive element is not there, the encouragement is, allowing these digitally aware souls to use the tools they understand (and are often better than the school can offer).

Don't you wish others could see the same?
