Teachers and Students using cell phones to text information to each other about a class?

I think texting between teachers and students about a class is acceptable as long as it is at a professional level. In fact, I do it now in a program called Healthy Active Lifestyles. This fitness program has no seat time so I utilize wiki’s and websites to get information to my students. I found that texting them assignment due dates and where to get the assignments has been really effective. What do you think?

Good CNN video called Teacher vs. Texting. Talks about a school who is piloting a program that issued cell phones to students to use during class.
