Mobile Study: Tablets Make a Difference in Teaching and Learning -- THE Journal - 1 views

  •  
    Two studies were released in an attempt to "quantify the benefits of mobile technology in education and the infrastructure needed..." In these students students had tablets and Internet access at home and at school. Of course, I'm not sure that it is tablet computers that give benefits, Internet access, cloud computing, or a combination, but I'm sure these studies will be touted by many far and wide. Of course, remember if they had strapped the tablets to the kid''s back and hadn't used them - they would have had lower scores. All improvement is all in how technology is being USED to teach. "The studies put Android tablets in the hands of students and their teachers in two schools - eighth-graders at Stone Middle School in Fairfax County Public Schools and fifth-graders at Falconer Elementary School in Chicago Public Schools - and provided wireless access to the students both in school and away from school. (The education were HTC Evo tablets.) Researchers then followed the students' activities over the course of a year, with the aim of evaluating "how access to these education for communication with teachers and classmates increases comfort with technology, extends the learning day, and allows students to develop digital citizenship skills within a safe and secure learning environment.""

Invisible technology: visible benefits in the classroom - Telegraph - 7 views

  •  
    As Chris Lehman says about technology - invisible like air but just as necessary... "Ubiquitous computing doesn't dictate that technology devices are used for every aspect of learning, but as trends like 1:1 learning grow in popularity in schools, teachers and pupils will be able to think more strategically about when and where to use computer devices."
