An outstanding use of Phones in the classroom ...

This is purely anecdotal and relies entirely on trusting that the two souls who independently shared this experience were also sharing a factual truth.

During a training session I was co-delivering, the discussion moved towards the use of mobiles in the classroom. The group of 16+ educators divided clearly into two camps. Until two members shared the following notion:
By getting my students to use their phones as part of the lesson; I gained a grade of outstanding.
One asked students to tweet questions into a RSS app on their smartboard, the other asked the students to use their phones to complete a search for some information.

Nothing complex, no overtly clever techniques, just an example of good practice and learning taking place.

It is worth noting that they work around 250 miles from each other.
