Five pieces of Mobile Technology for K-12
Iphone is obviously the most common mobile device in public schools. This makes iphone a viable mobile device for enhancing learning in the classroom. Dictionary.com app is a must have application for students of all ages. It incorporates a dictionary, thesaurus and a word of the day feature. Students can have the words pronounced out loud to them, and examples of how to use the words in a sentence correctly are also included. Are you wondering where a word came from? The word origins feature will tell you just what you need to know.
Facebook has many learning applications for students. For example one application allow children to use the Notes section to post book reviews for other kids to read or educators to grade, access each other’s papers for peer reviews, or simply maintain online journal entries or blogs allowing other kids to respond and react.
Java is a programming language invented by Sun Microsystems that helps supports many applications over the internet and on the computers. Without java or a similar program, online and mobile learning would be impossible.
iPad inspires creativity and hands-on learning with features you won’t find in any other educational tool. It is a device that students really want to use. Powerful apps from the App Store like iTunes U and iBooks let students engage with content in interactive ways, find information in an instant and access an entire library wherever they go. And now with iPad mini, even more students can get their hands on iPad.
One of the uses of windows phone for learning is Flashcards+. It is an utility which allows you to create your own flashcards, to help you continue learning wherever you are. This replacement for hand written cards is well set out and has a wealth of features. Features such as: accessing the app’s pre-made database of cards and studying a wide range of subjects quickly and efficiently.
Flashcards+ is perfectly designed towards students certain needs and give them you the ability to learn on-the-go or in the comfort of their home. In my opinion this is a necessary application for all Windows Phone Users and will surely help you in any situation.
