What do you do when your students are more interested in their phone than in what you're trying to teach them? If you're Michael Braun, well, you make their phones a central part of their classroom learning.

In collaboration with Peli de Halleux & Chris Mitchell (TEALS volunteers), Braun taught students to use TouchDevelop to create apps. Students were able to install, run, edit, and publish scripts using Windows phones. We attracted a large number of girls to our computer science course (who made up 50% of the class) and also accepted interested 8th grade students from the neighboring middle school, South Shore. By making the smart phone their workbench, we made students excited about becoming creators of technology, instead of just consumers.
