  • I really enjoyed this presentation at the charter school conference. We have been fighting the losing battle of keeping cell phones out of school and I am so pleased to see people like Judy advocating for appropriate use as a learning tool.

    7. 7. Ubiquitous computing? quot;Totally ubiquitous computing. One of the things our grandchildren will find quaintest about us is that we distinguish the digital from the real, the virtual from the real. In the future, that will become literally impossible. The distinction between cyberspace and that which isn't cyberspace is going to be unimaginable. There is where they don't have Wi-Fi.” William Gibson

    10. 10. The Horizon Report 2009 Edition “Already considered as another component of the network on many campuses, mobiles continue to evolve rapidly. New interfaces, the ability to run third-party applications, and location-awareness have all come to the mobile device in the past year, making it an ever more versatile tool that can be easily adapted to a host of tasks for learning, productivity, and social networking. For many users, broadband mobile devices like the iPhone have already begun to assume many tasks that were once the exclusive province of portable computers. ”
    11. 11. 2009 K-12 Edition Commonly carried by most college students, many high school students, and a growing number of younger students, mobiles have been evolving rapidly in recent years. Multi-touch interfaces, GPS capability, and the ability to run third-party applications make today’s mobile device an increasingly flexible tool that is readily adapted to a wide range of tasks for social networking, learning, and productivity. In some places, mobile devices like the iPhone have already begun to supplant portable computers as the Internet-capable device of choice.
    12. 12. Swiss Army Knife of the 21st Century “The convenience and pervasiveness of mobile devices is their main strength. Use this strength to reach your learners with information they need, store information your learners may need later, and get learners to complete tasks while going about their day- to-day lives.” Leonard Low
    13. 13. How can we use mobile?
    14. 14. What is the purpose of school? quot;[T]imes have changed, and students can get information from the internet, as well as many other places. Schools need to be the center that provides not simple information, but collaborative experiences based on that information. School should be the place that connects parents, students, and communities-- and technology can leverage all of this by providing the information. Technology makes school progress possible.quot; Tim Magner, U.S. Department of Education

In short, mobile devices are an integral part of children’s lives.

    33. 33. Elliott Soloway “This is the beginning of the future. The future is mobile devices that are connected. They're going to be the new paper and pencil.” “Cell phones can be powerful computers. They can do just about everything laptops can do for a fraction of the price. And many students are bringing them to school anyway.”
    34. 34. “It is not the laptop computer, but the cell phone that is going to change everything.” http://www.podtech.net/scobleshow/technology/ 1604/improving-education-with-teacher-of-the-year
    35. 35. “Pockets of Potential” Mobile devices are an integral part of children’s lives and they are here to stay. The social and cultural phenomena, market opportunity, and, most importantly, the “pockets of educational potential” documented in this report must not be dismissed. Our national debate must shift from whether to use these devices to support learning, to understanding how and when they might best be used. Just as Sesame Street introduced generations of children and their families to the potential of television as an educational medium two generations ago, today’s children will benefit if mobile becomes a force for learning and discovery in the next decade.
    36. 36. Opportunities quot;It is no longer a question of whether we should use these devices to support learning, but how and when to use them.quot; 1. To encourage “anywhere, anytime” learning. 2. To reach under-served children. 3. To improve 21st-century social interactions. 4. To fit with learning environments. 5. To enable a personalized learning experience.
