Mobile Learning at the High School Level

A few weeks ago, Scott Newcomb a fourth grade teacher in St. Marys, Ohio informed me about a
Mobile Learning project he has been involved with for the last two years. They have been using smartphones in the classroom and every student in our school district from 3rd grade to 6th grade has their own mobile learning device. They are adding seventh grade next year and the ultimate goal is to have a mobile learning device in every students' hand from 3rd grade to 12th grade!

Here is information and the school's mobile web site.

Scott presented at ISTE this summer in Denver, CO, on the topic. You can download a copy of his presentation handout here.

Here is a video introduction about the Mobile Learning project, check it out!!

Next year, they will have over 900 mobile learning devices in their school district!

This ties nicely with the The Future of Tech According to Kids: Immersive, Intuitive and Surprisingly Down-to-Earth article that appeared last week at Read Write Web.

Kids are embracing technology for their learning needs. Meanwhile I am involved with a very large company who is running a pilot to see if their employees would benefit from having mobile devices for communication, learning and collaboration. I think the school has it right!

Thanks Scott for the heads up!
