Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Get Smart by Texting w/ @Text_Engine | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
Text Engine was developed to offer cell phone users a means to search the web using their text messaging service. This is great news for educators and students in low-income and rural communities.  

And that's a good thing, because while smartphones are popular, there is still a great need for text-only services in low-income and rural districts. There is also a need in districts like NYC that empower students to bring their own devices to school, but don't have the means to enable students to connect to the internet.

The article needs updating I think - as I understand it, Google App Inventor was discontinued some time ago and transferred to MIT's App Inventor.

PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web

PhotoMath & Reactions To It From Around The Web | Web 2.0 for Education | Scoop.it
You may have already heard about PhotoMath, the new iPhone app that lets you point it at a math problem on a textbook and then solves it while showing all the work involved.


Some are immediately reacting by citing it’s potential use in “cheating,” while others cheer that it might force math teachers and textbook publishers to be more creative in how they teach math.

Lee Hall's insight:

I think it is helpful when you are working at home to be able to solve a problem and make sure it is right. I hated finding out I had completed a page of problems all the wrong way.

The blog dedicated to using mobile devices for learning.

Want to integrate cell phones into learning? You can involve your students with this planning lesson where students will focus on cell phones as learning tools. With an overview of the educational uses of cell phones (the Gr8 8, below), students will determine how they will choose to use their cell phones for educational purposes.

 

Contracts for tools will be developed by students and the result will be a plan for educational uses of cell phones.
