  1. We Surrender! Greeneville High School Greeneville, TN Dr. Linda Stroud, GHS Principal Beverly Miller, Greeneville City Schools CTO Larry Jones, GCS Network Admin Using Cellular Devices as Learning tools

  2. Cell phones and learning - a Central Office Perspective

  3. What a difference a year can make . . . • 2007-2008 school year • Administrators seeking to block cellular transmissions • Cell phone discipline incidents out of hand • Teachers struggling with cell phone issues • Students – connected to world only before/after school 2008-2009 school year • Encouraged appropriate usage • Students more engaged • Fewer discipline problems • Connected to world before/during/after school • 1:1 finally a possibility

  4. Dr. Linda Stroud – GHS Principal Cell phones and learning - an administrator’s perspective

  5. The Problem • Cell phone usage by students had become a HUGE behavioral issue at GHS and was overwhelming the discipline policy.

  6. The Solution • Use cell phones as learning tools! • Use them to our advantage to motivate students for learning and as a reward. • Set and enforce reasonable consequences that have the desired effect.

  7. The Results • It works! Cell phones are no longer a behavior issue at GHS. • Approximately 900 students x 4 periods per day x 120 school days = 432,000 opportunities for cell phone policy violation! However, • To date at GHS for the 2008-2009 school year: • ONLY 148 cell phones have been taken from students by teachers for policy violation • 35 of those students elected to leave their cell phone in the school office for 7 days • 103 students elected to pay a $20 fine for the return of their cell phone • $2060 have been collected in fines!
