Smartphone Learning

IT Bill

For the past several years the Horizon Report has listed mobile learning, in one form or another, as an emerging educational technology (e.g. mobile computing, mobile apps, social media, BYOD, mobile learning). Despite near universal device ownership, students have yet to fully embrace the smartphone as a tool for learning. Such media can be submitted to an e-portfolio or blog (e.g. Tumblr ) for peer review or assessment of learning.

Dear ISTE (reprised)


At the event, Carolyn Sykora , Senior Director of the ISTE Standards Program, shared that the 1998 standards described a landscape in which we were learning to use technology. The 2007 standards described a landscape in which we were using technology to learn. We’ve nurtured and grown flexible Learning Commons. We’ve led 1:1 and BYOD roll-outs. We’ve leveraged social media to connect themselves and their learning communities, often globally.
