A blog post on Learning from Students and their use of mobile phones in the classroom.Hello! One of my students always uses hermobile for taking notes of her home assignment.
Response to responding comment on mobile phone use• Hi Anne, I am sorry, I have just seen your question. I know, some schools don’t allow mobile phones at school at all. Mobiles are not allowed during state exams. There are no rules about them in my school. Neither my students nor I make phone calls during lessons unless it is necessary. You know, I am teaching students with disabilities. In fact, I can’t remember them using their phones rather than show me some picture and speak about them, or take notes, or record themselves. I think, it is better to make good use of technology than to ban it in class. All my students have mobiles, even the one with palsy who has difficulty using his hands. He has iPhone (has had several versions, in fact), iPad and some other gadgets at home. My kids are used to dealing with different keyboards during their face-to-face lessons. My student Mary uses the app ‘Заметки’ on her Samsung Mobile TV. The word means ‘notes’ in English. She is taking exams this week, I will ask her to show the app to me next week. cts0908 myeteachingexperience.wordpress.com
• Arun Basil Lal | May 7, 2012 at 6:19 pm | Reply | Edit• Its fun to see that you are actually letting students do this, I dont see a reason why you shouldn’t.• When I was in the university, we used to do this to copy (lets say) “notes”, but mobile phones in general were frowned upon by the staff. Of course, all of them had one of those in their pockets, still for some reason, we werent allowed to have one.
Culture ShockVividhunter | April 16, 2012 at 10:57 am | Reply•Hi Anne, thanks for replying to my culture shock survey.It’s interesting what things bring us down. Food andregular (in our countries at least) rituals and holidaysseem to be the things we really miss abroad. I’d love toread your responses to any of the questions. I’m happy toshare the information I get, and your comment abouthoping to incorporate the answers into a curriculum hasmade me wonder about how children, exchange studentsor those who move with their families, experienceculture shock.
