How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom - The Tech Edvocate

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom - The Tech Edvocate | Projects | Scoop.it

In today’s technological world, there is no escaping the smartphone phenomenon. The average person uses their smartphone anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Most people are even checking their phones every 15 to 20 minutes while they’re awake. The ways in which smartphones have become such an essential part of modern life is staggering, and something to be aware of when teaching in a classroom.

Smartphones can be both a great educational tool and a great distraction in the classroom. It should come as no surprise that almost every child in the US owns or has access to a smartphone. Statistics show that 56 percent of children age 8 to 12 have a smartphone. That number jumps up to 88 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 have or have access to a smartphone. And a whopping 91 percent of middle and high school aged students primarily access the internet via their smartphones.

This change in the way we interact with technology and integrate it into our lives has come dramatically and fast. It’s sometimes hard for teachers, many of whom grew up in an era with no mobile phones or even the internet, to adapt to this fast-paced technological generation. While smartphones can easily be the downfall of your students’ attention spans and performance, they don’t have to be. More and more educators these days are incorporating modern technology and students’ own smartphones into their classroom to engage and excite students about learning. Below you will find useful tips on how to manage cell phone use in your classroom, and use it for your teaching benefit.

This article will shed some light on the use of mobile devices in our classrooms when we are still thinking if it is a good option. It is not an option, it is a need, but some things must be seriously analysed.

Innovate My School - 3 reasons why AI could be your new teaching sidekick

Innovate My School - 3 reasons why AI could be your new teaching sidekick | Projects | Scoop.it
With artificial intelligence (AI) on the rise, educators have increasingly reflected on how this might impact teaching in the coming years, with some of the more scary predictions even suggesting that machines could one day replace teachers altogether. This fear is largely unfounded and an unhelpful way to think about AI and education; rather than posing a threat, when used correctly AI could actually be the very best sidekick for teachers in the classroom.

La startup PowerUp finalmente ha anunciado que lanzará una versión comercial de su Dart en febrero, cuyo precio introductorio estará entre  $ 29 y $ 37 USD. Ojalá en el futuro se pueda incluso programar la trayectoria de vuelo de estos mini drones, pues permitiría el aprendizaje divertido de la programación, de los principios de la física y de la robótica, todo al mismo tiempo.

Ponha um anel no dedo, um headset na orelha e prepare-se para uma experiência futurista até com as apresentações mais banais. Voiceboard usa os gestos e a voz para comandar a apresentação dos slides. Tão simples quanto isto.

Voiceboard foi desenvolvido no Reino Unido e tem lançamento marcado para o próximo dia 9. O preço do pack é algo proibitivo por enquanto: 799USD é preço avançado para as primeiras reservas.  Esperam-se reações do mercado a esta inovação.

flea palmer's curator insight, December 1, 2014 7:23 AM

No more having to use a clicker to navigate through slides, therefore making a presentation more natural!  Particularly impressive is the ability to move 3D objects around by just using gestures.
