Mobile Devices for Learning

Edutopia has a great online resource for Mobile Devices for Learning.  The full article can be found here.  On that page, click the link called Mobile Devices for Learning: What You Need to Know to download a short pdf (you need to register but it is free and well worth it).

Although the report is aimed at the American High School student market, it still makes for a good and informative read.

In summary, the report outlines Pros and Cons of using mobile devices and tackles the sticky question of whether the culture of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) causes inequality.  It offers you tips on how to get started, a beginners guide on what is a mobile device and a plethora of useful resources once you are hooked plus apps which are useful in education.

 

 

I have been working in the Educational Technology field within Higher Education for seven years. A big part of my job is finding new and innovative ways of integrating technology into current teaching and learning methodology. This can include assisting academic staff with Virtual Learning Environments/Learning Management Systems (Blackboard), implementing specific software packages, maximising current technologies and championing new ones. I find this profession both riveting and rewarding. I really enjoy life on the cutting edge, but I also enjoy being able to help staff achieve small and meaningful efficiencies; sometimes that makes all the difference.
