      TWT Summer 2010
      The Future of Mobile Learning & the use of PDA’s
    • Technology is ever-growing, and should be embraced to better our students!
    • What is Mobile Learning?
      “Mobile Learning is a term used to define the type of learning that takes place when the learner has some kind of mobile handheld computer, such as a PDA, Smartphone, tablet PC, games console or other portable device and can make use of the device, it’s connectivity, tools and content to learn at a time and place of the learners choosing.”
    • Different Devices of M-Learning

      PDA (Personal Digital Assistant)
      A combination of internet access and the ability to network. Has audio, video, movie, e-mail, and cell phone capabilities.
    • Different Devices of M-Learning
      E-book Reader
      Especially popular now, with the Kindle, and Nook. Text can be downloaded from novels, newspapers, and magazines to a portable device
      Laptop/Tablet PC

    • Why should M-Learning be incorporated into Your classroom?
      The benefits of using this new technology, is growing each and everyday. This video, which is put together by a student, and answers the question better than I can.
      The Future of Your Classroom
    • Pro’s of M-Learning
      This new technology appeals to the new generation of tech-savvy students
      Anytime, anywhere access to content
      Can enhance interaction between and among students and instructors
      Support differentiation of student learning needs and personalized learning
      Facilitate collaboration through synchronous and asynchronous communication
    • Con’s of M-learning
      Could give tech-savvy students an advantage over non-technical students
      May make it easier to cheat
      Might render some content outdated because of rapid upgrades—here today, outdated tomorrow
    • My Opinion
      Overall, the possibilities for new technology in the classrooms is endless. Most students already know enough about the new technology that they could easily adapt, and even excel. The world is constantly evolving, and classrooms should be apart of this movement forward. Preparing students to be able to use these technologies is something useful that they could learn in high school and take with them to college and beyond. As teachers, we are often seen as responsible for students evolution into the “real world”, by denying them access to these technologies, we are stunting their lives potential.
