Wireless technology is changing at a rapid pace as well as continuing it’s accelerating proliferation into classrooms all over the Uinted States. Students spend a lot of time outside of school using mobile devices for fun, games, and communication. Why not capture these skills and take advantage of their “love” for technology to improve student learning? Using mobile devices as learning tools in the classroom just makes sense.
Using mobile devices such as smartphones and iPads in the classroom has opened access to learning opportunities that were previously unattainable. Educators are able to influence and reach students on a new level. Students are more engaged and excited about learning than ever before, and the personalized education teachers can offer student is incredible and overall just creates a more effective learning experinece for the student.
Also think about this, what better way to prepare students for their future careers, than to teach them with the types of tools they will be using for those careers. Again, using technolgy in the classroom just makes sense.
