Cell Phones in School????

When I first read the title of this article I was like “what cell phones in school? How are students going to focus on school if they are going to be able to use their cell phones in class?”  After reading this article I can see why using cell phones in the classroom can be useful.  As the article says, a lot of times schools say they don’t have the money to use technology in the classroom, well now that students have smartphones they can just use that instead of bringing a computer which may be at least 10 years old and super slow.  Also, smartphones are around now, and students are going to use them outside of the classroom, so why not teach them how to properly use them? Plus, students constantly see teachers and administrators with cell phones and other such technology, so why can’t students use them?
