Cellphone Webinar Prompts Ongoing Discussion

July 24, 2009 1 min read

My colleagues at teachermagazine.org hit on a hot topic with their webinar on “Cellphones as Instructional Tools,” held yesterday with a bevy of prominent guests and thousands of participants.

The webinar proved so popular and the discussion so vibrant (more than 700 questions were submitted before it even started) that the Teacher folks have decided to continue it in an online forum. The guests of the webinar—Elliot Soloway, Cathleen Norris, Liz Kolb, and Ron Meyers—have also agreed to weigh in on the discussion as it gets going.

There are already some interesting comments and insights from educators, and a lot of requests for relevant resources. Why don’t you join in?
