Teachers Asking Students to Use Cellphone in Class

In a similar way that Denmark has started to give full internet access to students taking exams, some American teachers are embracing cellphones. They are asking students to use the cellphones as part of assignments and do to research if the device is web enabled. (via)

"Tech savvy teachers are asking students to use their phones to record foreign language assignments, take photographs for projects and do mini-Internet searches if they have a Web browser.

That's a stark contrast to the emphasis that has been placed on prohibiting their use, often out of fear students will cheat or take inappropriate pictures then passed on to friends.
