    Camera Phone Management Camera Phone Management Presentation Transcript

    • Cell/Camera Phone Management
    • The Reality
      • The reality of the situation is that many students are already in possession of Camera Phones .
      • Also, despite all our rules and efforts, these phones are in our schools.
    • The Reality
      • Current phone policies are becoming increasingly unenforceable.
      • Teachers and administrators have better things to do than to constantly be on the lookout for cell/camera phones (Delisio, 2006, p. 1).
    • Generation Gap
      • Today’s students have grown up in a world where technology is always at their finger tips.
      • From our students’ point of view, cell/camera phones are integral part of their daily life, and they have a valid place in their schools .
    • Viewed as a Tool
      • Today’s phones are equipped with calculators, still picture/video capability, dictionaries, spell check, video games and internet access (Phones in Schools, n.d., p. 1).
      • It’s time teacher started to view these phones as potential learning tools.
    • Potential Problems
      • Unfortunately, with new tools we can expect new problems.
      • Phones can be huge distractions.
      • Students my use them to avoid work (Delisio, 2006, p. 4).
      • Even worse, some may use them to bully their classmates through text messaging .
      • With camera/video capability, there are also privacy issues. Photos and videos of you or your students could end up on the internet (Cell Phones in the Classroom, n.d., p. 1).
    • The Solution
      • Fortunately, a manageable cell/camera phone policy is possible .
      • All you need to do is use common sense and sound classroom management strategies.
    • Example Policy
      • Cell/Camera Phone Policy
      • 1. Cell/Camera phones should be turned off and placed in desk phone pockets at all times, unless given permission or instructions to do otherwise.
      • 2. Please refrain from texting or talking to friends, playing games, viewing photos, or viewing the internet on your phone when you are directed to use it for another classroom activity.
      • 3. Please respect each others privacy. Taking photos and/or videos of others without their knowledge will not be tolerated.
      • 4. Be kind and respectful when using your phones to communicate with your classmates and the faculty
    • Example Consequences
      • Try playing the Good Behavior Game by giving out points to students who don’t break the policy.
      • Use soft, calm reprimands.
      • Assign phone time-outs . Thus keeping the student from using the phone their breaking the rules with (Woolfolk, 2007, p. 212-222).
    • Conclusion
      • By using common sense, sound practices, and a little creativity, integrating cell/camera phones into the classroom is possible!
