We visited a few public schools in the downtown area and were impressed with the use of mobile devices in the classroom. From elementary to high schools, students are using Netbooks, iPads, cell phones, iPods, e-readers and even PDAs for mobile learning. Educators are beginning to experiment with incorporating them more into the curriculum. Students are using apps in the classroom to check math calculations, verify foreign language translation and pronunciation and build vocabulary through electronic flash cards. Take a look at this short video as educators discuss the future uses of mobile devices in the classroom. Share your thoughts with us about this new trend.
