Cell Phone – A Tool For Effective Learning
Gone are the days when chalkboards or blackboards were used in the classrooms. Now, schools are allowing students to use their cell phones in the classrooms to help facilitate their education. BYOD (Bring your own device) is no longer just a trend, but a full-blown initiative that has proven to be successful for both students and teachers. Today, there is one common thing that you’ll find in every teen’s pocket, bag, or purse – it’s some kind of mobile device. Lugging around a heavy laptop to each class is a hassle. Why do students have to do so when mobile phones and tablets are available. For light tasks like reading, finding news, blogs, and taking screenshots of notes, a Smartphone is the perfect tool for the job. There are thousands of apps coming out of Smartphone markets for educational purposes. Moreover, learning processes such as listening, recording, copying notes, and more can be supported through mobile phones. Cell phones have become minicomputers and are now considered as powerful classroom tools. These handheld devices can be used to record oral exams or to research any kind of educational information. They are completely different from
a computer lab filled with stacks of notebooks and computers. Using cell phones in the classrooms makes a perfect sense, especially in schools that donâ€™t have the latest technology. Cell phones have aided the learning experience by bridging the school/College world with the real technology world. Mobile phones can be used for sharing information resources through Bluetooth, Infrared, and Wi-Fi. Other applications such as emails, Google drive, and social media can equally be used for sharing academic information resources. Itâ€™s the right time to accept and utilize mobile phones in the education sector to make the world a better, more well-informed place.
