In continuation of last week’s article, Part 1: 44 Smart Ways to Use Smartphones in Class, here is a new list of thirty-six additional ideas to help leverage the power of these tech gadgets in the learning environment.
I think this article was a really great read. I think that some of these ideas are great to help leverage the power of tech gadgets in the classroom and learning environment. Today technology is advancing and I think personally that it needs to be used more in the classroom situations. Kids today before reaching school have iPads or tablets to engage themselves with there learning skills. Specifically to this article they are looking at kids being able to use their tech gadgets in class. The ideas of using smartphones are to collaborate, communicate, create, curate and coordinate. One of the ideas for collaborating was embracing the power of augmented reality with apps like Planet Finder. This can make the kids really engage themselves into the study to try and find the planets by pointing their phones into the sky. The idea behind smart phones to communicate to communicate is great especially if you are in a PE class. Uploading videos and data straight away between the PE coach and student can take less time off and can be visual and accessed at all times. Getting students to create a Pinterest on a given topic is another good idea for the student to engage with technology and let other students see what they have done also. Lastly curate and coordinate is good for students to access PDF files, rather them all trying to get a book out having to go to a library. All these ideas are great for kids and teenagers make learning more fun and engaging themselves with technology.
