Officials are changing technology policies at a Colorado high school to allow students to use cell phones and iPods as educational tools. The change helps mitigate the school's lack of computers while teaching students how to adapt the devices for learning. One science teacher has students using video features on their phones to record geology lessons for future review and use mobile Internet to find a photo of a type of rock. "They know how to use them as toys, but if we don't teach them how to use them as tools, who's going to?" the teacher said.
