District Administration, v45 n10 p40-41 Nov-Dec 2009
Liz Kolb started her education career as a teacher of middle and high school social studies in Wyoming City Schools in Cincinnati. She was also a teacher and technology coordinator at Grandview Heights City Schools in Columbus, where she adamantly opposed cell phones in school until she had an "ah-ha" moment. She then founded the Web site Cell Phones in Learning (www.cellphonesinlearning.com) while writing the book "Toys to Tools: Connecting Student Cell Phones to Education." She recently earned a doctorate in education with a focus on learning technologies and is an adjunct professor at Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan. This article presents an interview with Liz Kolb. In this interview, Liz answers questions of wary school administrators regarding cell phones in class.
