Classroom Management, of course “I believe students can use cell phones as a learning tool. Think of the teacher you know who hates cell phones. If you post inappropriate or off topic messages you will be proving that person right and me wrong…and your phones will be disappearing forever into your pocket.” Joe Wood, December 10, 2007
