A teacher cell-phone program is just one of numerous ways schools in Jackson County, Mich., are integrating technology into the curriculum. Teachers participating in the program use school-issued cell phones to be available to students for homework help during certain hours after school. One teacher has students send her a picture of how far they've progressed in solving a math problem. The schools also are using electronic-response systems and other interactive tools, plus Nook e-readers with students who have special needs.
