Mobile Learning On The Interwebs

Beginning with the ASCD SmartBrief.

Conn. school district finds hits, misses with mobile devices
Southington Public Schools in Connecticut has found mixed results from a bring-your-own-device pilot project, Karen Veilleux, district technology director, said in a recent board of education meeting. Student participation varied by grade, as did conclusions as to whether the program was successful — ranging from some schools reporting increased engagement to other schools struggling to access the Internet because of aging infrastructure. The Herald (New Britain, Conn.) (3/27)

Baltimore school seeks to bridge technology gap with iPads
A survey of students at City Springs Elementary/Middle School in Baltimore found that about 44% of seventh- and eighth-grade students have access at home to the Internet and computers. The school launched a pilot program this school year in which students in kindergarten, as well as seventh- and eighth-grade, were given iPads. So far, students say the devices have made classes more interesting and helped them learn. WMAR-TV (Baltimore) (4/1)

Also the SmartBrief for EdTech.

Australian students test the iPad’s educational value
Three kindergarten classrooms in Queensland, Australia, are participating in a yearlong study to determine whether the iPad can improve achievement in literacy and math, as well as whether the devices help develop students’ creativity. “There have been past studies examining young children’s use of iPads and smart phone technology but this is the first to link the use with literacy and numeracy through creative applications,” said Sandra Gattenhof, associate professor at Queensland University of Technology School of Media, Entertainment, and Creative Arts. The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia) (4/2)
