But, while isolated schools or school districts have experimental pilot projects, many educators are still pretty wary of mobile-based learning, and some even ban mobile phones from being on campus.........

I use a lot of technology in the classroom, but as you can see how young people use mobile phones? I can tell you that my kids use cell phones for all but the training: weaving children in other classes, teachers are included, so that may be inciting fights movie theater, listen to music. All this is happening, and in my area. And then there are the phones go, when you teach the lesson.
