Are you tired of the constant struggle with students about using their Smart phones in the classroom? Well, change your perspective! Utilize those phones as a learning tool instead of an adversary. For example, mobile phones can be used as a cheaper alternative to "clicker" devices. A teacher could post a question on the whiteboard asking students what they believe to be the most important cause of the Civil War. The students can then text their answer as soon as they enter the classroom and are able to watch the changing results displayed in a bar graph on the whiteboard. Educational content developers are also targeting mobile devices by making test preparation materials available on mobile devices.
