  • Merhaba
  • Note to translator: SMS is text message, MMS is picture message. GPS is “global positioning service”--Child devices (pen on tether) to adult (= easily broken)
  • Step 1: Learn outside classStep 2: Use that to improve class
  • A basic “feature phone”
  • IPSOS KMG places mobile phone ownership at 92%In this presentation, we presume students have their own hardware. A teacher might buy a phone for receiving info, for classes.
  • US Department of Education analysis
  • It’s a personal device. What is their personal life like?
  • Performance is last: Save high stakes for when Teacher is present
  • Rubric for pairing technology and teaching
  • Note to translator: Don’t translate “Cambridge University Press” or “Limitless Horizons, LLC”
  • Note to translator: Don’t translate “Flurry.com”--Median, NOT average
  • Note to translator: Don’t translate “Pronunciation: Clear Speech”Note to translator, see notes on slide 17 regarding “special needs”--Popular in a special needs context.
  • Note to translator: Don’t translate “Cambridge Dictionaries”--This is not a gameNote social icons on website
  • Note to translator: Don’t translate “Math in a Minute”
  • One thing glossed over here is technology maintenance. Do you need IT staff? Do students have their own gadgets?
  • Note to translator: “Special needs” includes autism, Asperger’s, speech and motor impairments…Note to translator: “Tumblr” is a company name, so is “Flickr”
