Abstract

This paper describes classroom practices based on interact ing with students through their mobile phones, using a min imum of dedicated technology. Students’ sense of propri etorship over such devices has led to results that continue to stimulate our current research efforts. The technologically impoverished teaching tactics first devised to fit technol ogy available in the late nineties are still used occasionally to liven up bricks-and-mortar lessons, even as they provide insight into what integration needs are likely to put out pay back when implemented using more sophisticated wireless platforms and systems.
