Elliot: There must be something in the water; how else can we explain the sudden growth in mobile learning “events”? For starters, within a span of a few days, two other bloggers(Blog#1, Blog#2) have pointed out the coming “revolution” in K-12 due to mobile technologies. Why now? WHY ALL OF A SUDDEN? via blogs.districtadministration.com
Here is another interesting blog from Cathie and Elliot! I agree that looking into the use of mobile technologies in campuses will open wonderful opportunities for both young and adult learners. I understand the skepticism and fears of district and campus administrations on the different repercussions concerning harm, bullying, and abuse. However, I think that fears and apprehensions should not be the basis in determining and setting the limitations on student's and teachers' progress in inovative and creative teaching and learning.
If we are truly for quality education, then achievement does not come without risks! We need to be open to changes and challenges! We also need to be wise and better decision makers in maximizing the use of current technologies. We have to set aside our personal issues and focus on allowing all learners to reach their fullest potentials.
