'I feel naked without it': 99 per cent of smartphone users experience 'nomophobia' | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
New research suggests nearly all Australian smartphone users experience "nomophobia" – or fear of being without their mobile phones - and more than one in eight have severe symptoms associated with illegal or dangerous behaviour.

A national survey of more than 2800 smartphone users found 99 per cent exhibited some degree of nomophobia. While 37 per cent had only mild symptoms, nearly half experienced the phobia in the moderate range and 13 per cent had a severe case.

Mobile phones banned in Australian schools in 2020?! | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
I'm disappointed to see that we are still making bad decisions like this. While inappropriate use of phones at school can be counterproductive to good learning, if teachers are educated in how to integrate mobile devices into their classes, they can be powerful teaching assistants. If phones are as bad for doing your job (learning at school, running a country) then perhaps our pollies should consider a phone ban at parliament? One poor polly even has a phone that looks like a lump of coal!

StudyTXT - an early mLearning solution

StudyTXT - an early mLearning solution | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
StudyTXT was a way to review key facts and concepts using the flexibility of your cellphone. Use the downtime you have in your day (waiting for a bus, on the train, sitting around campus, etc.) to view one StudyTXT message many times a day, until you know it and can apply it in your subject area.

StudyTXT was created in 2004 by Peter Mellow, Senior Lecturer at AUT. Peter has been working on the StudyTXT project since then, developing the concept and then setting up the working service for its first operational trials in October 2005.

The StudyTXT service is now not operational. We have decided to shut the service down and focus on other mobile delivery methods for learning. The StudyTXT project was an important landmark in the development of mLearning within New Zealand and this site is left up for information on the project. Peter Mellow. March 19, 2008

Mark A. Dean's curator insight, June 8, 2017 12:52 AM

While this article is about the workplace, I could see this happening in schools a lot.  The change from taking notes via pen and paper to smartphones may result in a lot of misunderstandings.  The digital natives and non-digital natives will have to find a way to understand each other, and that will take time.  

Mauresa Mitchell's curator insight, February 1, 2020 12:18 PM
it is so common that people have already developed a mindset of when mobile should and should not be used. As times change we should be open to all ideas.

Banning mobile phones in schools can improve students' academic performance. This is how we know | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
The effects of mobiles phones and other technology at school is a hotly debated topic in many countries. Some advocate for a complete ban to limit distractions, while others suggest using technology as a teaching tool. Kids in public South Australian primary schools started the school year without being allowed to bring their mobile phones to class, unless they are needed for class activity. All students in public Western Australian Victorian, and Tasmanian schools have a mobile phone ban in place since for all or some of 2020. New South Wales also banned mobile phones in public primary schools, with secondary schools having the option to opt in, since the start of 2020.

The Use of StudyTXT as a form of mobile learning in an accounting decision-making course — | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
This paper describes the implementation of a mobile learning teaching resource - StudyTXT – in an introductory accounting decision-making course. The paper explains the philosophy of the course and how the educational rationale underlying the use of StudyTXT might facilitate the attainment of the course objectives. The paper further illustrates how StudyTXT is developed, implemented and used in the course, with references to appropriate literature. A questionnaire-based evaluation of StudyTXT by students reports on their perceptions about the impact of the teaching resource, as well as about the factors that either encouraged students to, or discouraged them from, using StudyTXT. The paper concludes with suggestions for the further utilisation of the resource.
