At a time when technology is rapidly changing, educational use of that technology is staggering behind. Schools should be places that prepare students for the rest of their lives. In any case, whether it is at college or in a career, students will need to be prepared to use all sorts of technology. Additionally, students are carrying powerful technology in their pockets each and every day. Educators must work to familiarize themselves with cell phones and other technologies to implement in and out of the classroom. This review of literature aims to provide some evidence to support further use of technology in schools. Slow implementation of technology has resulted in a lack of significant research on this topic. This paper intends to shed some light onto a topic that needs to be addressed by educators at all levels, create more interest for the use of cell phones in the classroom, and to alleviate some of the tensions that come with technology use.
