Richard Jones's insight:

"Some people think technology will replace the teacher but that could not be further from the truth," said Bruce Umpstead, director of educational technology and data coordination for the Michigan Department of Education Office. "The more technology we have available, the easier it is to personalize learning and we need the teacher. It all comes down to the teacher and their knowledge and comfort level with the technology."

The Innovative Educator: Finally! Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING

The Innovative Educator: Finally! Research-based proof that students use cell phones for LEARNING | ipad-schools | Scoop.it

"A new study conducted by TRU provides a body of research which supports the idea that students use cell phones to learn, and also that schools are not acknowledging or supporting them fully, yet. This research supports the work of  innovative educators who are guiding today’s generation text and will help in the effort of getting more schools to stop fighting and start embracing student use of mobile devices for learning in school. Rather than banning, the study highlights the fact that if we meet children where they are we can leverage their use of mobile devices for powerful learning."

This article is about a study that was conducted that supports the idea of students use of cell phone to learn. It also points out that schools are not acknowledging or supporting mobile learning. This study focuses on the fact that if we meet children where they are we can leverage their use of mobile devices for powerful learning. We know students use their mobile devices so why not use them in the teachers favor.
