We can all agree that students can be easily distracted by their cell phones. Before we start point the finger, we need to realize where these students have learned their behaviors from. I am constantly distracted by my phone at work, at soccer practice, at the dinner table, etc. We are all guilty of using our phones at the wrong time and place.
At this point, pretty much everyone has a cell phone. I saw on Facebook yesterday that one of my friends had bought a Trac-Phone for her 1 year old to play with! We can't live without these devices and they are all but attached to our bodies. So what happens when, by some dark force of magic, you forget your phone at home?
