  • Value of smartphones …. Very personal for me.2012Managed to drop my weight from 188 to 173. In large part due to awareness that came from calorie tracking. Helped change my diet, lowered what I ate and awareness of where calories were coming from changed a lot of behaviors No salad dressingLess beerLess ice creamMore fruits and vegetablesMore nuts Tracked everything for 30 days … apply that OCD to anything and anything is possible. Probably could have done it without the app, but it sure helped … especially to have app available on all of my devices (phone, Kindle Fire, Desktop)

  • SAMPLE Policy. Not sure if this has actually been adopted anywhere. Broken over several pages to be able to read. Page 4 phones are NOT to be used in the classroom, laboratory or clinical areas, or in hallways and common areas of the college.

This policy is not limited to devices sold as a cell phone. Any electronic device which meets the spirit of this policy is included.
  • Policy creation, adoption, and enforcement is based on a set of beliefs or assumptions
  • I am not a wall builder, no matter how high the wall, there will be pushes/pulls to go over, under, around, or through the wall
  • Horse is out of the barn, use is so ubiquitous the novelty of a phone free zone is quaint at best and impossible except in highest importance events/locations (high stakes testing (NREMT), high security (state of the union), high concentration (brain surgery)
  • [Insert helicopter image … this is a battle I would want to win]Pick my battles very carefully, win the battles I pick
  • Lecture is a very ineffective education method. Without creating/facilitating distraction students will distract on their own
  • World is full of distractions. Disastrous to try to control them all. Distraction is a timeless problem. Role of teacher is to keep students engaged with worthwhile activities, age/skill/knowledge appropriate instructions, timely feedback, regular assessment, and breaks to re-energize.

  • Since we can’t likely overcome ingrained habits, brain wiring, and addictive behavior how can we be intentional about using in and out of the classroom. Use as a force for good, rather than a nefarious tool of interrupting and distracting evil.
  • Middle school students “make presentations on iPads, how to keep track of their homework on a smartphone, and what they should and shouldn't post on social media sites.
