Upon entry and departure of class, please ensure cell phones are turnedoff and stored in your backpack.2. On days when we are using cell phones for learning, please ensure they areset to silent.3. Only use phones for learning purposes related to classwork.4. When phones are not in use on a day we are using cells for learning placethem face down on the upper right side of your desk.5. If you notice someone in the class using their cell phone inappropriately,remind them to use proper cell phone etiquette.6. If at any time your teacher feels you are not using your cell phone for classwork you will be asked to place your phone in the bin in the front of theroom with a post-it indicating your name and class. After the first infraction each month you can collect your phone at the end of class. After the second infraction you can collect your phone at the end of the day. After the third infraction your parent or guardian will be asked to retrieve your phone. If you use the phone inappropriately again during the month your parent or guardian will be required to retrieve your phone. At the beginning of each month, you have a clean slate.Classroom ManagementFrom Lisa Nielsen at http://www.techlearning.com/blogs/35840 16. Using QR Codes 17. QR codes every day 18.
