One classroom application I can see would be to project your Voicethread on the classroom screen/wall. Next, have Voicethread call your cell phone (yes they call you), and then you can walk around the classroom, navigate the slides, and have different students record a comment (using your cell phone) as you circulate throughout the room. It is so easy, see the tutorial here.

One way that cell phones can be utilized without having them inside of the classroom, is by developing projects for the cell phone.

One project could be to have students' create unique ringtones for their own phone or to share with others. UPDATE!
