Not all that long ago, the term “mobile learning” implied laptop computers and mobile carts that were wheeled from classroom to classroom. Now, as a growing number of students carry smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices that can connect to the internet wirelessly through a cellular as well as a Wi-Fi connection, the definition of “mobile learning” is expanding—and with it, the possibilities inherent in the term....

    It’s exciting when students have access to a variety of tools where learning can be made personal, meaningful, and productive. In fact, a group of K-12 educators are organizing a conference in Phoenix April 6-8, 2011 called Mobile Learning Experience 2011. Teachers from around the world will gather to share successes, struggles, lessons, ideas, and their passion for engaging today’s students. http://mobile2011.org

    I agree with the general message of this article. the emphasis on using devices for homework, however, is misplaced. the mobile devices should be a general learning tool. Students should not have separate “homework” that they do on the devices. It should just be a continuation of what is going on in class. Great information on managing devices in the classroom.

    Great article. Thank you. Mobile learning is a powerful tool (when used properly) to help teachers offer differentiated instruction, soltuions for RTI (Response to Intervention) and help with a variety of learning styles – that were harder to administer in years past.
