Cell Phones in Learning

While I think that students can definitely participate in their own citizen journalism around their community, I also think mobile phones provide a wonderful opportunity for student activism. Another resource that I think might be helpful for activism is text messaging.

Cell Phones bring countries together.lessoning the digital divide!

Cell Phones in Learning

Often cell phones in developing countries are used for learning activities, especially distance learning and business activities. Mobile Africa is a website devoted to exploring cell phone communication and development in African nations. While a major concern over using technologies in the United States is that there are many developing countries that do not have access and thus cannot participate in business and social communication via computer technology.

Mathematics by Cell Phone!

Cell Phones in Learning

The program turns cell phones into mini mathematic computers, where students can conduct activities such as graphing, modeling, functions, and quadrilaterals. IN addition the website suggests many age appropriate activities for mobile math programs. Finally, if cell phones are not allowed in your school, mobile math lab activities can be done for homework and I believe (although I have yet to try) the data can be shared between students for more collaborative activities!

Beyond mentioning cell phones he also talks about other popular student everyday digital activities such as social networking and chat rooms. By using our student's cultural tools we have the opportunity to cross the "gap" between everyday school activities and everyday outside school activities. The article Listen to the Natives by Marc Prensky is an excellent justification for why we should be considering cell phones in schools.

Hurray! For Gcast Podcasting.

Cell Phones in Learning

A great lesson for me from this is that you do not need every student to have a cell phone in order to have engaging learning activities from them. I want to share an article about one of my former Master's students. Pat Sattler is an innovative and very creative technology teacher in Southeastern Michigan. She works at a Catholic K-8 school where she wanted to do podcasting, but did not have lots of cash for equipment.

No need for "clickers" when you have a cell phone!

Cell Phones in Learning

Polleverywhere could be a great "ice breaker" activity to find out what students know about a topic. I have written before about trying to find a way for basic cell phones to replace the expensive classroom performance systems (CPS). Last week I posted about Wiffiti , an instant brainstorming tool that uses cell phones like CPS clickers. Now, I have found another web2.0 that works in the same fashion as a CPS tool. It is called Polleverywhere.

Since students are so engaged in using their cell phones outside of school for text messaging, taking pictures, recording movies, and talking, I believe there is a lot of potential for developing engaging classroom learning activities. This blog is dedicated to experimenting and uncovering some of those activities. Welcome to the Toy to Tool: Cell Phones in Schools learning blog.

Cell Phone as a Scanner.

Cell Phones in Learning

While I am still trying to think of some engaging learning activities with this application, one issue I ran across while using ScanR was that you have to have a decent quality camera on your cell phone. A web2.0 resource called ScanR allows you to take pictures with your cell phone (or other mobile devices) and store them online or sent directly to email as pdf files. One nice aspect of this resource is that you can have multiple cell phone numbers sending scans to the same account.
