The Mobile Learner

I was fortunate enough to attend another education technology conference in 2008 and this conference was the Western RCAC symposium held in London, Ontario on December 11th.

This afforded me the opportunity to focus on the messages provided by the presenters in why technology integration is crucial in today’s classroom. Overall, I felt that the conference was a positive experience.

iPhone users, this is for you!

I am not an iPhone user. The reason is because I like to use cell phones that the majority of students and teachers have, which are more basic cell phones. As that changes, I will purchase an iPhone or something similar, but until then I will be in the trenches with the students.
