Abstract

This paper describes classroom practices based on interacting with students through their mobile phones, using a minimum of dedicated technology. Students' sense of proprietorship over such devices has led to results that continue to stimulate our current research efforts. The technologically impoverished teaching tactics first devised to fit technology 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 payback when implemented using more sophisticated wireless platforms and systems.
