Mobile Devices at School: Possibilities, Problems, and Tough Choices
Adams, Dennis; Angeles, Rebecca
Educational Technology, v48 n1 p35-38 Jan-Feb 2008
This article takes a "point/counterpoint" approach to considering the educational use of mobile devices. It views the possibilities and problems surrounding the use of small laptops, cellphones, iPhones, etc. Although clear answers to questions regarding the classroom use of digital devices are hard to come by, the authors believe that educators at the local school district level may be in the best position to develop the technological rules of the road in a way that helps them meet curriculum standards.
