Here is a great post for teachers who are looking for a way to boost engagement in their classrooms. This is so easy and it works!! Coourtesy of ASCD SmartBrief.

Can cellphones boost classroom interactions for some students?
More teachers are finding ways to boost lessons and classroom participation by using devices that were once banned from schools -- cellphones. Some teachers in Ohio are texting reminders about tests and homework, with students responding and engaging. "We had some students who maybe ... have said three or four words the entire semester," said Damon Mollenkopf, an Advanced Placement history teacher at Westerville North High School. "All of a sudden, they are giving me these fantastic contributions via [Twitter] or via texting or via email." WBNS-TV (Columbus, Ohio) (8/7)
