Link to January 7 Reading Today post.

New educational uses of cell phones are challenging the "turned off and out of sight" rules that many districts have adopted for student cell phones on campus.

A growing number of teachers, carefully navigating district policies and addressing their own concerns, are having students use their personal cell phones to make podcasts, take field notes, and organize their schedules and homework.
