For years, schools have banned the use of cellphones in schools. But today some schools are cautiously embracing smartphones as a student-friendly technology that can enhance lessons at little or cost to schools. “This is their life,” said Barbara Horner, an eighth grade language arts teacher at the Emma C. Attales School in Absecon. Patricia Weeks, director of the SRI & ETTC said a major advantage to smartphones is that students already know how to use them. “The teachers are interested in integration, how to use the technology to improve the lesson,” Weeks said. “With a smartphone or tablet they don’t have to teach the students how to use the technology itself.”
