I've written about cell phones in schools a number of times in the past (here's a summary post). I'm fortunate to work in a school that allows students to use their cell phones with teacher consent. My school is still the exception to the rule regarding cell phone policies.

Before going any farther I need to tell you that what triggered this post was watching this video that I discovered on Scott McLeod's Mind Dump.
