The Future of Mobile Devices

The Future of Mobile Devices

Greetings all,

 

We would like to wrap up our coverage of mobile devices by asking what the future might hold for the classrooms of the future.

Here is some material to start off the discussion:

 

This is a PDF of studies, projects, and a lesson plan involving learning through the use of mobile technology in the classroom.

Technology in the Classroom: Digital Mediahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbVKPhVCRFI

 

Our Question for Today is:

How do you think the classroom environment will change in the next 10 years?  Will there even be classrooms, or will students simply log in from home?

  1. I think that the classroom environment will change in that students will not move from class to class in large groups (such as 25 english class students arriving at the same classroom at the same time). I think that teachers will be assigned students or classes, but the work will be delivered electronically and the administrative tasks of the class will take place online, like D2L. The teacher will be more of a consultant and guide. Depending upon what the student struggles with or how he or she performed on an assignment, the teacher will provide assistance or the next assignment to help fill the learning gap. The assistance will be things like videos, online flashcards, games, etc. on the topic.

    Students will progress through things quickly if they have mastered the content. Grades and progress will be visible to students via an app and they can see which requirements they still lack to complete the school year or the high school graduation requirements. The students will be the drivers – with full access to the tools and data they need to progress through the education system. Teachers will be mentors and facilitators.

  2. I don’t think that the classroom will go away, but I do think that the majority of books that they students will use will be online. (this is shawn-tel)

  3. 10 years is a long time! Maybe by then we’ll be like the Jetsons – and kids will get dropped off at school from a spaceship. Or maybe it will just seem like that’s what’s happening in our virtual minds and worlds. Maybe children won’t need to be schooled at all – everything can be put into their heads when they turn a certain age – maybe around age 2. Then what will we do all day? Whatever we enjoy doing?

    • I think there have been some great resources shared. Great job with creating this platform in WordPress and keeping it going EVERY DAY for a full week. Many of your colleagues have participated in the discussion on mobility in the classroom and I think we’ve all learned more than we knew before. Kudos!
