50 Smartphone Apps Every Teacher Should Know About | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

We cover many of these apps (and why you should know about them) in our latest issue of the Edudemic Magazine. It’s all about the technology needed for when you head back to school. Check it out here! The following is a cross-post from our content partners at Online Colleges

 

Mobile phones managed to mostly kick their classroom stigma once the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, and other PDA-cellular hybrids (also known as “smartphones,” but you knew that already) popped onto the scene.

 

Thanks to the veritable Library of Alexandria of apps available on the respective markets, life can run that much smoother for professionals of all types. And that, of course, includes teachers.

Smart phones are an incredible educational tool for both educators and students. I have an Android Smart Phone and I can do pretty much everything with it that I can do on my computer or laptop or tablet. This means that I always have access to my data, files, information, and can do work anywhere. Students have the same ability with their smart phones. They have access to information, class resources, and so much more at any time.

Here are some mobile / smart phone apps and resources for students and teachers:

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher.

Mobile phones expose businesses to massive risks

Mobile phones expose businesses to massive risks | 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners | Scoop.it

Organizations are failing to respond to the culture of employees using their own mobile devices for work and are opening up their systems to security risks.

These are the preliminary findings of a survey by PwC and Infosecurity Europe.


82% of large organisations reported security breaches caused by staff, including 47% who lost or leaked confidential information.


Only 39% of large organisations encrypt data downloaded to smart phones and tablets
54% of small businesses (38% of large organisations) don’t have a security awareness programme
While 52% of small businesses say social networking sites are important to their business, only 8% monitor what their staff post on those sites.

 

Some 75% of large organisations (and 61% of small businesses) allow staff to use smart phones and tablets to connect to their corporate systems and yet only 39% (24% of small businesses) apply data encryption on the devices.

Information about Googles translation and language technologies...

 

With our latest update to our Google Translate app for Android, we’re aiming to get one step closer to the Babel fish. By integrating Google Goggles’ optical character recognition (OCR) technology, we’ve made it possible for you to use the camera of your Android smartphone to input text without typing. This makes Google Translate for Android one of our most intelligent and machine learning-intensive apps.

 

Speech recognition, handwriting recognition, OCR, and machine translation all rely on powerful statistical models built on billions of samples of data. Here’s how it comes together:
