Let the kids use their phones in class | Teacher Network | The Guardian - 2 views

  •  
    Interesting article from the Guardian. "The effect of banning mobiles was the equivalent of an extra week's schooling over the academic year, according to the research.

The cheat sheet to choosing effective education apps - Daily Genius - 7 views

  •  
    "In an attempt to uncover what works, I combed through a few hundred apps and analyzed them by asking the following questions:
    How easy is this app to use for less tech-savvy students and teachers?
    Is the app free? This is crucial for multi-device or BYOD classrooms.
    What are other educators saying about this app?
    How are an array of classrooms using this app?
    How often should the app be used?
    Can the app be used out of the classroom? Is it designed to be easy enough to use when teachers or classroom leaders aren't there to help?
    There are, of course, many other questions to consider when trying out an iPad app (or any other smart device app) for classroom usage. However, I'd recommend taking your deliberate time and spending as much time testing, researching, and trying out as many apps as possible."

10 Ways To Use Mobile Devices in the Classroom | Edudemic - 4 views

  •  
    "It is pretty much a given these days that students have mobile phones, tablets, and e-readers. Leveraging what your students already have and already know how to use is a smart idea - even if you aren't implementing a full-on BYOD classroom environment. There are many ways to have students use their mobile devices in the classroom in a format geared towards learning rather than for leisure. The infographic in this post takes a look at ten fairly general ways to use devices in the classroom. The general nature of some of the recommendations makes it a great starting point if this is a newer concept for you or for a particular group that you're working. "
