      mobile technology and social networking sites within
      As educational institutions advocate for more access to
      schools across the country, we have to ask:
    • ?
      what are the benefits to using
      mobile devices as educational tools

    • The Toronto District School Board recently voted to lift the ban on mobile use in classrooms and has begun initiatives to incorporate cellular devices as a vital learning tool within its schools.
      A lot of parents disagree with the school’s decision.

      “giving a distracted generation a free pass to be distracted in the one place where they should be paying attention, or at least trying to”
      - Joe O’Connor, The National Post
    • In United States high schools, 98% of students have access to some kind of smartphone, according to a report by Blackboard and Project Tomorrow.
      “Simply blocking such technologies does students a disservice. An education that fails to account for the responsible use of mobile devices and social networks prepares students for our past, but not for their future.”
      - David Nagel, THE Journal

      A great E-learning tool for little naturists is NOAH– an app that enables users to identify types of bugs and trees by uploading a picture and receiving details of the exact type in as little as 24 hours.

      For older students, there are study partners available at the touch of a button with Wolfram Alpha’s Calculus, Algebra and Music apps and not only do these study partners know the answer to the questions you ask, but they provide young learners with a step-by-step guide on how the problem was solved.
    • Studying Abroad?
      Apps such as iLingual and Talk to Me help students learn the local language on field trips abroad while fully emerged in their learning experience.

      other benefits in turning to learning tools available on smartphones and tablets for reasons of both
      and convenience

      “Do you ever leave the house without your phone?”
      “The beauty of a mobile phone is that
      it’s always there.”
      how convenient!
    • Both students and educators are constantly looking for ways to get around expensive textbook fees. Using textbooks available on tablets and mobiles are easier to read, more convenient to carry around in one’s backpack and cost very little in comparison to a hardcover copy.

      Some mobile education advocates believe that the tablet’s current shortcoming—limited multitasking– could be its greatest asset in education, forcing students to focus on one task at a time.

    • “a tried-and-true platform to let conversations flourish”
      is another example of a cost-efficient tool for
      mobile learning as it keeps the conversation
      continuing outside of the classroom, fuelling more
      class involvement than ever before.

    • Using mobiles in the classroom is also
      beneficial to teachers and parents
      as well as students.

    • Attendance for iPhone is an app created for
      Teachers that allows them to easily take
      attendance in their classrooms by taking a
      photo of a student and uploading it to their
      class list.
      Parents can also track their child’s grades and keep more up to date on their learning progression through apps such as SchoolCircuit and myGradeBook.
