Collaborating on mobile devices is going to be an essential part of connecting students. We've only begun to understand collaboration but those of us who are doing it now know the challenges inherent in connecting with schools in Africa. If we're going to do it, we'll have to resist "bandwidth" and "device" snobbery and have ubiquitous access for the platforms where we connect. Everything used in collaborating globally will need to be mobile friendly.
Lots of research starting to come in that smartphones make great study helpers and curricular delivery tools. This from the Jacksonville daily news:
"Onslow County students using smart phones in math courses not only outperformed
their peers in math but also went on to take additional math courses.
A Project K-Nect Evaluation Report, prepared by Project Tomorrow for Digital
Millennial Consulting, noted that Onslow County Project K-Nect students —
including students at Southwest and Dixon high schools — were more likely to
achieve proficiency in algebra and algebra II than other students in their
school district or state in the 2008-09 school year. Numbers for the 2009-10
school year will be released later this year."
