Integrating Mobile Learning Technologies to Positively Impact Learning and Productivity
Save to My Collections
With the increased demand for mobile devices, such as Smartphone, tablets, netbooks, global position systems (GPS), digital audio/video recorders, and music players (mp3), educators have numerous opportunities to integrate mobile technologies into daily activities and the curriculum. Educators and students can use mobile devices for increased productivity and learning, but oftentimes need integration ideas. In this paper, several web tools are explored while discussing ideas about integration to maximize learning and productivity. With the impeding competition in the tablet and Smartphone market, software applications (apps) are continuously invented and upgraded, which invite new opportunities to enhance curricula, increase productivity, and maximize learning outcomes. Further, “the cloud” offers software suites, virtual storage, and productivity tools, which are exciting for students when the classroom offers ways to use them. Learning “on the go” can be harnessed in today’s busy lifestyles.
