Great article from the New York Times about how technology--especially mobile--is making its way more and more into school curriculums. An encouraging article for m-learning, for sure!

Cathy's comment, March 3, 11:10 PM
Taking on your idea, I think perhaps through interacting with the tools, we as educators are also thinking about the way we teach - how do we "move" the kids towards more complex tasks. Do you realise that we are not just thinking about content but the "skill" of writing
Participant29's comment, March 3, 11:11 PM
Hi Participant 24, coming from the role of a typical student in Singapore, I feel uncomfortable using Twitter as a platform because of the insecurities it causes. How can I ensure that I learn the 'right' thing? How can I go back to revisit what has been discussed? What if I cannot find what I need due to the large number of threads related to the topic that I want?
Sarah's comment, March 3, 11:11 PM
@participant26 I agree with you that there are limitations to the use of Twitter without sufficient logistical support. Sometimes I get my students to try logging into the school Wifi using their phones, but you're right, the Wifi connection is usually not stable. Also, not every student has a device that can connect to Wifi.
