Why Teacher Must Go Mobile
Pascopella, Angela
District Administration, v45 n10 p42 Nov-Dec 2009
This article profiles Cathleen Norris, a Regents Professor in the department of Learning Technologies at the University of North Texas and co-creator of GoKnow Learning who encourages teachers to use cell phones in lessons. As a middle and high school math teacher for 14 years in the Norman (Oklahoma) School District and Dallas (Texas) Independent School District, Norris at first thought the idea of using cell phones in a classroom was absurd. Now, Norris sees the value of cell phones and how they can provide an incredible opportunity for administrators to close the digital divide. For Norris, cell phones answer one-to-one computer use.
