Watch this video see how Locke Elementary School in Chicago
uses Twitter to stay in touch with parents, students, and school
leaders via text messages.
Connect to the World with ipadio
In the busy school day of a teacher, many feel their schedules don’t allow
for the complexities of the equipment and setup necessary for podcasting.
But it needn’t be that way. Services like ipadio provide users with the ability
to easily create and capture an audio broadcast from any phone that can
be published and shared.
In Paul Bogush’s 8th-grade social studies class, world leaders are not
unknown stuffy old people in a book. Paul’s “Lunchtime Leaders” interview
leaders from around the world on their opinions about what students
should do to be prepared for the future. They are called the Lunchtime
Leaders, because they actually interview all of the leaders during their
lunch period, which means that they have to start and finish within 20 minutes. A service like ipadio allows them to simply use any phone with threeway calling to connect their interviewee with ipadio. When the call is done,
the interview is immediately published and available as a phonecast.
Mobile phones provide a powerful platform for teaching, learning, and
connecting with the school community. The examples shared here give you
some practical ideas for getting started with incorporating the technology
students own and love into practice. This is important not only as a part of
the 21st-century educator’s toolbox but also as a vehicle to provide more
opportunities for students to use real-world tools.

better.”
