This is an article by the ASCD, on mobile devices transforming education.
This talks about how research and funding from the U.S. Depart of Education’s National Educational Technology Plan has helped bring about changes in the way mobile devices are used and encouraged in classrooms. Devices used range from I-pads to Nintendo DS to cell phones. Applications when paired with guided learning saw increased in average scores and higher classroom participation. I would like to spark discussion by asking the class what are examples of policies dealing with mobile devices in the classroom which you have experienced.
