  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. • 2008-2009 school year-- 200 students elected to pay a $20 fine for the return of their cell phone • $4000 have been collected in fines! • All money from fines was spent on students at the school.
