Life happens and students will miss a class or two, but missing class regularly is a problem that will dearly cost a student.
Interesting idea to twist distracting technologies around to make them effective teaching and learning tools. I’m appreciative of the point Repass is trying to make, that whether or not to allow a technology in the class has more to do with its use than the technology itself.
Interesting topic and one I can relate to as a classroom teacher and adjunct professor… I like the idea of the structure that encourages cell phone use during certain times in the classroom. You are probably here because when it comes to classroom management, you realized that textbooks just don’t do the trick by adequately preparing you (or because this is an assignment). Learners will be able to articulate the importance of developing a classroom management plan. Learners will be able to describe the function of creating and maintaining classroom management.
Learners will be able to identify the signs of poor classroom management and ways to change it. Learners will be able to compile a list of effective classroom management strategies verses ineffective classroom management strategies. Learners will be able to choose the moment a teacher has lost classroom management after listening to different scenarios.
Learners will be able to design their own classroom management plan that addresses a variety of situations.

While not everyone brings a laptop to class, it’s hard to find a student who doesn’t bring a cellphone to the lecture hall. State University presented an article that shows missed lectures as a key reason for failing a class.[3] There is a connection between student success and class attendance.
One instructor gives students the choice of attending or not, but subtracts from their grade when a class is missed.[4] The instructor’s grading method could produce good results. The educational leader should monitor classes to gather information to use in an analysis of classroom effectiveness. It just goes to show that technologies are not, in and of them themselves, ineffective or effective. Personally, I know that I never read or learned about all the different routines and plans that a teacher needs to set in place so that the classroom does not become a zoo!
Today’s phones are very powerful miniature computers that can help students cheat, ignore a lecture or surf the web while in class. In addition, research shows cellphone use is distracting to other students.[1]  How can instructors curb the use of cellphones in the classroom? Students can use smartphones to look up information on the web, and some classroom software is designed to use the cellphone. As a classroom management technique, the grade reduction could start off very low, but increase as more classes are missed. The positive and negative aspects of the classroom will help the leader know where improvement is needed and where praise is deserved.
There’s a lot of hype around creating a high-tech classroom, but very little evidence to back up claims that this enhances student learning. When students text, check Facebook or surf the web during a lecture, the instructor has strong competition for attention.

The instructor can learn from the analysis and improve classroom effectiveness often by finding ways to turn the problem into a positive learning experience. Professors who are willing to explore new ideas and be creative will be better able to engage their students. Call me old-fashioned, but when I have a class of 250 students, I try to capture their attention with my teaching and with activities where they engage each other face to face. Having times where instructors encourage the use of cellphones for learning could lead to students understanding there is a time and place for this technology. There aren’t enough opportunities for in-person interaction today, and I try to take advantage of every one I get.
In my experience, I have taught mostly in the elementary grades and some high school special education classes. If students are talking in class, they could be disrupting others from learning or they could be adding to the discussion by asking questions and increasing all students’ learning.  When students use cell phones in class, they could be distracting others or they could be using smartphone technology to research an answer.
The effective classroom will at times stop such actions and, at other times, encourage them.
Instructors can learn through observation to strengthen their skills and provide a more engaging and learning classroom.
