Laptops And Phones In The Classroom: Yea, Nay Or A Third Way? | MindShift | KQED News - 1 views

  •  
    "How should teachers - both K-12 and college - deal with the use of computers and phones by students in class? On the one hand, those sleek little supercomputers promise to connect us to all human knowledge. On the other hand, they are also scientifically designed by some of the world's top geniuses to feel as compelling as oxygen. So where does that leave teachers? Should you ban these devices in the classroom? Let students go whole hog? Or is there a happy medium? This seemingly simple topic ends up being what one professor and pedagogy expert calls "a Rorschach test for so much that's going on in education.""

We Need Cellphones In School Because They're Distracting - Looking UpLooking Up - 2 views

  •  
    "Cellphones in schools is a subject I've discussed at length before and one that doesn't seem to be going away any time soon. It's a bellweather issue, an issue that indicates clearly where you sit on the educational spectrum. Do schools teach students "the rules" or help students learn effectively?"

Should My Child Have a Cellphone? Appropriate Ages and Stages of Use - The Tech Edvocate - 3 views

  •  
    "It is an unarguable point that cell phones are a great way to keep in touch. However, giving a child a cell phone can be a tough call for parents. In the United States, the average age for adolescents to receive their first cell phone is 11. There is no one-size-fits-all approach for determining the appropriate age to give a child a cell phone.  Cell phone use depends on a variety of circumstances. In an emergency situation, having a child equipped with the cell phone is a savvy and essential way to stay in touch.  There can be many benefits to giving a cell phone to a child. Children and parents can inform each other about any changes of plan. Parents can stay in contact with their children throughout the day. Children can reach friends more easily."

Cellphones aren't leaving the classroom, but Canadian educators split on how best to handle them | National Post - 2 views

  •  
    "Researchers and educators agree that cellphones have become fixtures in Canadian classrooms, but opinion remains divided on how best to address their presence. All agree that the presence of smartphones can be problematic if students are allowed to devote more attention to their screens than their studies. One research paper suggests the majority of schools are still treating cellphones as a scourge and banning the devices outright both in and out of class. But that study and a growing number of boards say they've had more success once deciding to stop fighting the technological tide and find ways to incorporate cellphones into schools."

Biggest Spike in Traffic Deaths in 50 Years? Blame Apps - The New York Times - 0 views

  •  
    "The messaging app Snapchat allows motorists to post photos that record the speed of the vehicle. The navigation app Waze rewards drivers with points when they report traffic jams and accidents. Even the game Pokémon Go has drivers searching for virtual creatures on the nation's highways. When distracted driving entered the national consciousness a decade ago, the problem was mainly people who made calls or sent texts from their cellphones. The solution then was to introduce new technologies to keep drivers' hands on the wheel. Innovations since then - car Wi-Fi and a host of new apps - have led to a boom in internet use in vehicles that safety experts say is contributing to a surge in highway deaths."

In addition, once your students or you create a 360° image, please ask to join my Flickr group, 360 Images for Schools, Creative Commons-license your image so others can use it, and upload the image to the Flickr group."

Coding in the math classroom - 1 views

  •  
    "Why teach coding? Simply put, coding can change and impact people's lives. The effect technology - as a result of computer code - has on this world is incredible. What used to be thought of as impossible is now made possible. What's more amazing is that our technological accomplishments always open up new realms of possibilities. Cellphones, for instance, didn't stop at phone calls - they led to streaming music and eBooks and brain teasing games and the ability to map the night sky. This suggests that learning technology and its underlying language - coding - is extremely powerful."

Smart-Camera Photography: Enrich Students' Creative Writing Skills | Edudemic - 2 views

  •  
    ""How did you get your kids to do that?" It's a question I often get from colleagues when they see a picture a student took in my digital photography class - a class I dub iPhoneography, as much for the ubiquitous accessory that many of my middleschoolers wield like an appendage as for the hipster play on words, although the name belies the fact that any smart phone will do. That, and an eye for observing the sometimes aesthetic but always interesting minutiae of the day-to-day, or what Picasso called, "the dust of everyday life." Sound pretentious? Sure, but that doesn't mean it isn't doable for 12- and 13-year-olds."

Kids With Bedroom Smartphones Sleep Less: Study - 1 views

  •  
    "A smartphone in a child's bedroom may undermine good sleep habits even more than a TV, new research suggests. A study of more than 2,000 elementary and middle-school students found that having a smartphone or tablet in the bedroom was associated with less weekday sleep and feeling sleepy in the daytime. "Studies have shown that traditional screens and screen time, like TV viewing, can interfere with sleep, but much less is known about the impacts of smartphones and other small screens," said study lead author Jennifer Falbe, of the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley."
