Welcome to episode six of the Technology Shopping Cart podcast where educational innovation thrives on the food of creative ideas! This week Karen Montgomery and Wesley Fryer discuss the important but controversial subject of using cell phones and other mobile devices for learning in K-12 as well as university classrooms. This podcast is the first of three parts, our next episode will focus specifically on iPhones and web applications for the iPhone which are relevant for classroom learning. In this episode we address the reasons it is important to utilize cell phones for learning, including helping students learn digital etiquette with cell phones (part of digital citizenship.) Mobile devices like cell phones can be used in various ways to blend learning and extend learning beyond the traditional boundaries of the bell. Refer to our podcast shownotes for links to the resources and websites we discuss in this show.
