Thank you, Lucy for allowing me to collaborate with you on coming up
with weekly list of websites around a theme to post every Friday.

I look forward to collaborating with you and also adding this feature
to the Infinite Thinking Machine blog.

I've decided to make this week's Friday Five around the theme of Cell
Phones in education due to a lively discussion happening at my school
around this topic. The discussion coincides with much discussion on
the educational technology scene around the release of the Horizon
2009 Report.

Hope you enjoy the list of websites around cellphones in education
which ranges from futuristic predictions, to practical ideas for using
cellphones in education, to safety tips.
