Checking phones in lectures can cost students half a grade in exams - 25 views

    "Students perform less well in end-of-term exams if they are allowed access to an electronic device, such as a phone or tablet, for non-academic purposes in lectures, a new study in Educational Psychology finds. Students who don't use such devices themselves but attend lectures where their use is permitted also do worse, suggesting that phone/tablet use damages the group learning environment."

App Inventor for Android - 42 views

    You can build just about any app you can imagine with App Inventor. Often people begin by building games like WhackAMole or games that let you draw funny pictures on your friend's faces. You can even make use of the phone's sensors to move a ball through a maze based on tilting the phone. But app building is not limited to simple games. You can also build apps that inform and educate. You can create a quiz app to help you and your classmates study for a test. With Android's text-to-speech capabilities, you can even have the phone ask the questions aloud. To use App Inventor, you do not need to be a developer. App Inventor requires NO programming knowledge. This is because instead of writing code, you visually design the way the app looks and use blocks to specify the app's behavior.
    WOW! Very Scratch-like UI for programming Android mobile apps!!

I Don't Need Your Network (or Your Computer, or Your Tech Plan, or Your…) - 55 views

    Will Richardson talks about the impact of smartphones on education. This links nicely to the NPR report (based on the Pew study) that the digital divide is being turned on its head.
    Got to love Will Richardson. Not earth-shattering, but a great synthesis of several things that have been rattling around in my head lately, too.
