More on Mobile Phone Learning in Schools

In previous posting I've suggested that mobile phone technology offers a quantum leap in student connectivity and engagement in schools.
Today eSchool News have published an article by Julie Evans the chief executive officer of Project Tomorrow, which administers the national Speak Up survey on education and technology.
Ms Evans provides an analysis of what technologies students want to use for their learning and how they would like that to occur. Project tomorrow also survey teachers and parents as well and the results may astound you.

The article begins with a discussion of cheating using mobile technology, but then moves to a broader discussion of digital pedagogies that support the use of mobile phone devices. The article is well worth the read.
