OR: Mobile devices become student learning aids | Hillsboro Tribune | E-Learning for Educators | Scoop.it

When student Eddie Chavez taps into resources on the Internet, he learns from two communities of teachers, those inside his school and others around the world.

 

Chavez, a senior at Hillsboro High School, uses an iPad to make his day easier and his education stronger.

 

“I organize my life on the planet with it,” Chavez said. “It’s endless. There’s not one day that I don’t go looking for something useful.”

 

From online tutorials to downloadable apps of periodic tables and conversion units, the mobile computer gives Chavez learning opportunities that enrich his classroom experience.

 

The Hillsboro School District has relaxed its policy on student use of mobile devices in school. With a teacher’s discretion, students can use a personal device in class as a learning aid.

 

“More kids bring in tablets because computers at the school aren’t the best,” Chavez explained. “It’s a fast world, and the computers are not keeping up.”

 

Computers available to students in Hillsboro schools are desktop computers inside computer labs. There often are not enough computers for the number of students in the lab, and when a student finally does get access, the older model computers can take up to 10 minutes to load a homework assignment, Chavez said.

 

“I remember some of that technology from when I was in the first grade,” he added.

 

Chavez plans to attend college and is interested in political science or public administration. He already has shown a talent for activism by participating with a group from the district that went to Salem to advocate for more K-12 funding. He also worked the phone bank for Citizens for Hillsboro Schools, the group promoting a $25 million bond for school maintenance and technology that is now going before voters.

 

“I’m raising my voice for my younger brother in the fourth grade,” Chavez said. “I want him to have a better opportunity through better technology. It will enhance how our teachers teach us and how we learn.”

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | E-Learning for Educators | Scoop.it

Below are some good videos I got a few days ago on examples of how some augmented reality apps are being used with kids to help them improve their learning. If the concept of augmented reality

 

if all new to you then here is a brief definition of it: Augmented Reality is exactly what the name implies: an augmented version of realty created by mixing technology with the known world. It might be a distorted, augmented, or less augmented version of the actual world but in its basic form, augmented reality is a simulation or rather a way of superimposing digital contents into the real context.

You can learn more about the importance of augmented reality in education from " Teachers' Guide to Augmented Reality ".

Now here are some video examples of augmented reality concept in action. These tutorials are all brought to you from apps by Paul Hamilton website.
