More teachers are finding ways to boost lessons and classroom participation by using devices that were once banned from schools -- cellphones. Some teachers in Ohio are texting reminders about tests and homework, with students responding and engaging. "We had some students who maybe ... have said three or four words the entire semester," said Damon Mollenkopf, an Advanced Placement history teacher at Westerville North High School. "All of a sudden, they are giving me these fantastic contributions via [Twitter] or via texting or via email."
