70 Ways to Keep Kids Engaged




Uses in the Classroom:


Not great for video content creation


Becomes heavy to hold after a while


Disadvantages:


“Any sort of learning that happens when the
learner is not at a fixed, predetermined
location, or learning that happens when the
learner takes advantage of the learning
opportunities offered by mobile technologies.”

mLearning

What is Mobile Learning?


Mobile learning is about

Mobile learning is about

Mobile learning is

Possibilities for Education:


It will offer a more
affordable tool
than a
complete laptop.


Its
portability

will encourage experiential
learning. (Can’t you just envision a class
standing out in the wetlands with their iPads,
collecting data?)


It will offer new ways to engage students with
text.

Will it be transformational?


It will encourage
“paperless” classrooms
.


It will ignite students’ interest levels (as most
new technology seems to do… at least
initially).


It’s “magical and revolutionary,” qualities that
will evolve and become more apparent.


Will it be transformational?

But…

It will
not

be transformational

if we continue to do

the same old things

that we’ve always done,


just with

an expensive, shiny, new toy.
