Texting is changing everything that we do. At the 102nd Annual AAFCS Conference, several polls were taken and information was gathered instantly while the result showed on a screen right before our eyes.
This transformation will be invading educators’ lives before we know it. Several school districts use classroom clickers to take polls but once phones become an everyday thing (and students learn not to be obsessed with them each time they beep) we'll eventually see cell phone use in class for instant quizzes and discussions.
Btw, Learning ZoneXpress has a colorful poster to teach kids to think before they send!
