Amidst a Mobile Revolution in Schools, Will Old Teaching Tactics Work?| The Committed Sardine

Amidst a Mobile Revolution in Schools, Will Old Teaching Tactics Work?| The Committed Sardine | Anything and Everything Education | Scoop.it

Just a few years ago, the idea of using a mobile phone as a legitimate learning tool in school seemed far-fetched, if not downright blasphemous. Kids were either prohibited from bringing their phones to school, or at the very least told to shut it off during school hours. But these days, it’s not unusual to hear a teacher say, “Class, turn on your cell. It’s time to work.”

iPads in Primary Education: The iPad unlocks the shackles of the Interactive White Board - By Mr Yeomans | Anything and Everything Education | Scoop.it

As mentioned I only have one for my class and although I could easily borrow other teachers iPads in order to have a class set, the thought of orchestrating a lesson with each child on an iPad seemed a little daunting. So how was one iPad going to impact my teaching and the children’s learning?"
