“When it comes to technology integration, you need to meet students (and teachers) where they are. When you begin with a tool they already know and love, youâ€™re less likely to be met with the kind of resistance you might otherwise get to institutional hardware or software. For teachers, eliminate the fear factor and youâ€™ve empowered a previously disenfranchised group of self-professed Luddites. For students, who treat the cell phone like an appendage, youâ€™re capitalizing on an existing passion for the technology.”
Juliette LaMontagne argues on the Design Observer that mobile devices aren’t distractions in schools; they’re machines for learning.
