I use Google in the classroom for a dictionary. We are always hard pressed for time and dictionaries. I teach students to use their phones to text to Google using the numerical code for the word GOOGLE (466453). Using 466453 as the phone number, a student types define WORD and sends it. Within seconds, the student will receive a text message back from Google with the definition. You can text various codes to Google and receive information back. This is sort of like the KGB commercials you've seen, but it's FREE! I always check to make sure students have permission and unlimited texting! Here is a list of other ways you can text Google for information:
