Cellphones in schools

Students creating learning videosMe and a few teachers are currently busy creating a wiki for schools in South Africa to try and see how we can shape school policies regarding Internet and cellphone use in schools. See http://saschools.wetpaint.com

The whole debate about if cellphones should or shouldn’t be allowed in classrooms is a complex one. As such it needs to be debated and critically looked at through the lens of educational outcomes. Will it assist in the learning process or detract from it?

Please see my blog about the subject at my school2.0 blog

A learning day

“Every day is a new day of learning. We can excel and exceed our own standards by consistently upgrading our outlook and attitude towards those around us. Our position, our power, our status… nothing is permanent. What will remain in fond memories of those around us is not the altitude of our achievements, but our attitude, acts of kindness, and consideration towards others.” — CV Varghese
