Bestwick, Angel; Campbell, John R.
Exceptional Parent, v40 n9 p18-20 Sep 2010
Parents and educational professionals are asking the question, "Are schools preparing students for their future lives?" Mobile technologies such as smart phones, iPods, GPS systems, iPads, and a constant stream of information drive much of people's world and work. The use of such technologies increases with each passing day. But how often do students and teachers use mobile technology and media for relevant, meaningful learning? Many children spend a great deal of time interacting with their mobile devices. Mobile devices are, and increasingly so, will be a large part of children's lives now and in the future. These devices can and should be used for learning and productivity related to learning. Applications for mobile devices provide the support for learning anytime, anywhere, and right at the time learners need it.
