    This is a great article and I’ve heard as well as seen smart phones being used in similar ways. As a field trainer for many years working with K12 teachers where smart phones were used to challenge students; for instance a music teacher would send out a daily text regarding a song or artist and the first student to text back was rewarded. The history teacher used it to send out a text regarding that date in history, students would search for answers; their findings were the daily start of class. Many great ways to use it, even the company I work for developed a classroom assessment tools, students don’t need clickers, just log into the test using their smart phone. We need to embrace technology, work it into our daily plans, it’s not going away.
