This week's Question of the Week focuses on smartphones in the classroom. Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty recently suggested students should be allowed to use smartphones in the classroom, saying that the devices have a variety of helpful educational tools -- calendars, planners, and browsers, for example -- and teachers should have the ability to make the call on evolving technologies. The Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation, however, said the phones are too disruptive and that until they're actually part of lesson plans, they won't help with learning.
What do you think? Should smartphones be used as learning tools in the classroom?
