  • Life Consequences
    Students are sometimes “sexting” “to friends for their entertainment value, as a joke or for fun."
    Six teens face child porn (13 to 15) charges after being caught "sexting" each other. Criminal Charge!
    IN PA, 3 girls (12, 12, 16) charged with child pornography for sexing. Picture of them in bras.
    15% of teenagers have risque photos of themselves or their friends on their cell phones.
    1 in 5 sext recipients report that they have passed the images along to someone else
    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/bestoftv/2009/01/15/pn.sexting.teens.cnn
  • "If you take a picture, you can be accused of producing child pornography; if you send it to somebody, you can be accused of distributing child pornography; and if you keep a picture, you can be accused of possessing child pornography. Anywhere along this chain of transmission of the images, you can be charged as a registered sex offender." -Parry Aftab, an Internet privacy and security lawyer.
  • School admissions officers and potential employers often look at online profiles
    …the repercussions of sending an inappropriate message could be endless
  • Dangers of Texting and Driving
    One in three (34%) texting teens ages 16-17 say they have texted while driving. That translates into 26% of all American teens ages 16-17;
    Half (52%) of cell-owning teens ages 16-17 say they have talked on a cell phone while driving. That translates into 43% of all American teens ages 16-17;
    48% of all teens ages 12-17 say they have been in a car when the driver was texting;
    40% say they have been in a car when the driver used a cell phone in a way that put themselves or others in danger.

  • Texting Location Safety
    Phone apps have location feature
    Typically, the subscriber must give permission and the cell phone must be enabled for tracking. Consult with your service providers for more detail.
    Some apps are very persistent and you have to turn them off after download…settings
  • Texting and Bullying
    When kids receive harassing or inappropriate text messages, there are several things they can do:
    • Never, ever respond to the message sender.
    • Report it as soon as possible to a trusted adult (and if that person doesn’t help, tell others until someone does).
    • Save or print the message to keep a record, then delete it from the phone.
    • Only keep contact information of close friends and family in their address book.
    • Talk to their wireless provider about how they can help (such as blocking the messages or changing their number).
  • Step 3: Social Contract
  • Tips for Social Contract
    The teacher should explain to the students that there should be some rules concerning how their cell phones will be used in the classroom, and students have an opportunity to be part of the rule making process (the goal is to have no more than 5 simple rules to follow and a consequence for non-compliance).
    Students should be asked to brainstorm rules. During the brainstorm, students should be encouraged to support their rule with reasons why it should be implemented (such as “cell phones should be on vibrate at all times”, the student should then explain why this is important. If they can’t, ask for other students to help explain it.)
    Once there is a workable list of rules, students should be encouraged to narrow the list to about five rules. The teacher may want to do this himself, or to use the analogy of a professional job where one is given a cell phone and a contract. One could ask the students to imagine that they were given a professional contract, hen they could be asked which“rules” they think should be implemented in their classroom. Using this analogy may also help to eliminate some redundant or unnecessary rules.
    Once the rules have been selected. The students should be asked to brainstorm consequences for not following the rules. Once again, asking students to decide on the best option.
    The teacher should let the students know that she will be adding these rules and consequences to a permission form that will be sent home to have parents and the students sign.

  • 5 Rules for Cell Phones in Schools
    Set rules based on business regulations for cell phone use (look at business contracts)
    Social contract with students
    • Must be on vibrate at all times
    • Keep them in the front of the room until you are going to use them.
    • All messages/media sent or published must be related to lesson.
    • If you are referencing someone else in class, you must have their approval before posting or publishing.
    • Create a permission form (in addition to the School’s AUP)
  • Step 4: Permission Form
  • Sample Permission Form
  • Dear Parents and Guardians,
    We are starting a new project this year in our biology course. The students will be taking pictures of different biological species that they encounter in their everyday lives and posting on a private class website. In order to capture the species in the everyday lives of the students, I have given them the option of using their cell phones to take the pictures and send them to the class website. While the students are not required to have a cell phone for the project, they are welcome to use their own if they choose to and if you allow them. In class, we will be discussing issues of mobile safety and etiquette before starting the project. I will be using the ConnectSafely Guidelines for Mobile Safety (http://www.connectsafely.org/safety-tips-and-advice.html ). If you would like to participate in this conversation, please feel free to attend the class sessions on March 5th and 6th during any of the biology class periods:
    8:00-9:00
    9:10-10:10
    2:10-3:10
  • In addition, I will be holding an information night about mobile safety and the project on March 3rd at 7:00pm. I will go over the project in detail, show you how it works, and also answer any questions you may have about using cell phones in learning.
  • There is some research that supports the need for using student cell phones in learning and teaching students how cell phones can be a productive and important tool for their future professional growth. This will be discussed in detail at the information night as well as during the March 5th and 6th class sessions.
  • Finally, you are welcome to participate in this project! We are using a private space in a photo-sharing site called Flickr, where all the photos will be sent and eventually posted to a map at the exact location they were uncovered. You are welcome to take a picture of a biological species that you encounter, send it to kolb@flickr.com along with a short text message on what you think the species is and the location of where you took the picture! Feel free to check the website each week to see the learning progress. Login: Kolbbiology Password: Biokid
  • I hope to see you in class and/or on the March 3rd information night. In the meantime if you have any questions or concerns do not hesitate to contact me at kolb@gmail.com or by phone 777-222-5777.
    I give permission for my child to use their cell phone for phone calling for this project:
    ______________________________________________________. (parent signature)
    **They can only use _____ number of calling minutes for this project
    I give permission for my child to use their cell phone for text messaging for this project:
    ______________________________________________________. (parent signature)
    **They can only use _____ number of text messages for this project
    I give permission for my child to use their cell phone for mobile Internet for this project:
    ______________________________________________________. (parent signature)
    I give permission for my child to use their cell phone for taking and sending pictures and/ or videos (circle one or both) for this project:
    ______________________________________________________. (parent signature)
    **They can only send _____ number of media messages for this project
  • Rules agreed upon by students and teacher
    Cell Phones Must Be on Vibrate at All Times
    Cell phones should be placed in the front of the room at the beginning of class (at the designated table in your numbered slot) and whenever they are not needed for instruction
    All mobile messages or media sent from your phone during class MUST be related to the lesson or activity
    If you are referencing someone else in class, you must have their (recorded verbal or written) approval before posting or publishing.
  • Consequences
    The student will be asked to write a letter home to you and explain why they did not follow the rules in class. They will also be asked to come up with better class guidelines around cell phones use in schools so this does not occur again.
     
    I will adhere to the classroom rules for cell phone use
    ___________________________________________________. (student signature)
     
    Thank you
    Liz Kolb
  • Step 5: Alternatives
  • Alternative Ideas
    Select an online resource that couples with cell phones, but also has web-based options for uploading or sharing. For example if you use Flickr to send pictures to and from mobile phones to a private place online, students who do not have a cell phone, can still upload to Flickr via the web.
    Grouping students. Purposely putting students in groups or pairs where the teacher knows that at least one of the group members has a cell phone that can be used for the project is a simple way to keep the students who do not have cell phones anonymous (because the teacher can say, “someone in each group should take out their cell phone to use for this activity.”)
    Allow students to use your own cell phone.
    Landlines (many web-based cell phone resources have toll free calling numbers) for phone calling activities.
    Center activities for K-8 students where the teacher can use one cell phone with all the students during center time.
    Allow students to use hardcopy options that they hand in to you, and you upload the work to the online resource. This is important since a few parents do not want their children using cell phones in any capacity.
  • Step 6: parent Information night
  • Parent Night Ideas
    An overview of why you are using the student cell phones.
    Describe the project(s) that will revolve around cell phone use, and any cost associated with the project and student cell phone use.
    Alternatives that the students have for completing the project without using cell phones
    Any change in school cell phone policy as a result of the project(s).
    Rules of the cell phone use during the project and the consequences for the students who do not follow the rules.
    Parents should be invited to participate in the activity (within reason).
    Provide parents with multiple ways for feedback (email address, a text message number, a voicemail (Google Voice would be great for this), and an online anonymous survey (such as Google Form).
  • Ideas For Parents
    http://www.safetyweb.com/ (monitor your child’s digital identity).
    Visit websites that have ideas on how to stay safe via the mobile phone.  One example would be http://connectsafely.com
    Talk to your kids about text bullying and sexting, especially the short- and long-term consequences.
    Monitor their cell phone use: Who are they texting? Who is texting them?
    Suggest that everyone’s cell phone stay on the kitchen counter or another centralized place while they’re home.
    Set rules about the kind of behavior that is and is not acceptable—on a cell phone, or anywhere else. Remind kids of the rules periodically.
  • Ideas for Parents
    Model Appropriate Use:  Try not to text or talk on the phone while driving, try to not interrupt conversations or dinners with cell phone activities.  Also explain and point out to the children when you are modeling an appropriate use such as, “I am not answering the phone because we are having a family dinner and I want to give my full attention to my family for this hour.”
    Document Family Activities:  Model how to capture pictures or videos of family vacations or family activities via the cell phone.  Demonstrate how to capture reactions (via audio recording) to family activities.  This is a great way to model data collection in the real world via cell phone.
    Get involved with the classroom projects.  Since parents often have their mobile phones with them all day, they could capture images or send text messages into class for the school assignment along with their children.  They could join the class text message alert in order to receive information from the teacher about homework or other class activities.
  • Step 7: start slowly, remind, Follow through, and Feedback
  • Improving on Traditional Learning
  • Research on cell phones in learning says…
    "The proportions of textisms that kids used in their sentence translations was positively linked to verbal reasoning; the more textspeak kids used, the higher their test scores”
    2) "The younger the age at which the kids had received mobile phones, the better their ability to read words and identify patterns of sound in speech.”
