Smartphone Apps in Education: Students Create Videos to Teach Smartphone Use as Tool for Learning
Clayton, Kara; Murphy, Amanda
Journal of Media Literacy Education, v8 n2 p99-109 2016
Smartphones are regular classroom accessories. Educators should work with children to understand the capacity of smartphones for learning and civic engagement, rather than being a classroom distraction. This research supports a collaborative project the authors engaged in with students in two states to discover what the perception of smartphone use was by students and teachers. One element of this project included students producing YouTube style tutorials on the educational use of mobile apps. The authors explored smartphone use in the classroom. Student created products correlated to technology trends in K-12 education and their relationship with state by state demographic data.
