Oh dear I HAVE to put this in the syllabus for next semester

Do students cell phones ring while you are giving a lecture? Well it has happened more than a few times in my class and I even begin each PowerPoint presentation with a request that they be shut off for the duration. Well next semester I'm adding this Cell Phone Policy as well as adding a point deduction.

The dedicated readers who have persisted through the horrific recent lack of blogginess on my part, will recall that at the start of the semester, I told my students that if their cell phone rang in class, I would answer it and cause them some slight embarrassment that they may wish to avoid.

Well, Friday, I got the chance to put my money where my mouth was.

So what did you say when you answered the student's phone?

I haven't used it yet...though I wanted to more than once this semester. You'll have to read the linked post to see what the instructor did say to the called. It's good.
