Allow cellphones in classrooms, McGuinty says
By The Canadian Press
 

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty says school boards should be open to the idea of allowing students to use cellphones in the classroom.

McGuinty, who won’t even let his ministers have cellphones during cabinet meetings, says he understands they can be a major distraction.

But the premier says there is a “right way” to use them in class.

Teachers can use cellphones to show students how to access information online, for example.

The Toronto District School Board is rethinking its ban on cellphones, saying it’s trying to find ways to make cellphones acceptable in the classroom.

I still don't like cell phones in my classes, but I'm willing to listen to supporters. Thanks for posting Junko.
