Smartphones in the classroom: a teacher's dream or nightmare? - CBC

Smartphones in the classroom: a teacher's dream or nightmare?   - CBC | New Technology | Scoop.it
When students return to class this fall, a majority of them will be toting something that teachers themselves are still learning to deal with: a mobile device.

Whether it's a smartphone, tablet or laptop, survey after survey shows more and more — and younger and younger — schoolchildren have their own computing devices and are taking them to class.

A report last year found that just among Grade 4 students, 25 per cent had a cellphone; for high school students, close to 90 per cent have smartphones.

Smarta mobiler i klassrummet: lärarens dröm eller mardröm??

I artikeln nämns att ca 25% av de Kanadensiska eleverna i fjärde klass har en mobil. Detta kan jämföras med att ca 86 % av eleverna i åldern 9-12 har egen mobil i Sverige och av dem är 78 % smarta mobiler.
