Mobile phones are now made more affordable, making it possible for parents to buy their children with a unit of their own. Unfortunately, some schools do not allow the use of cellphones in the classroom, although there are obvious benefits that students can gain from it. However, there are studies conducted to find out on different ways of increasing the learning process, both inside and outside of the classroom, with the help of mobile phone devices. There are different apps that can be developed to create various ways of communicating and even remind students of their homework and upcoming projects.
Below are different ways of harnessing the potential of cellphone devices in helping students make the most out of their learning experience.
Text reminders for upcoming assignments and school projects
Remind101.com is a free website that is specially created for students and teachers to create email and text reminders for their projects, quizzes, assignments, tests, and class and laboratory activities. Teachers can create their own accounts, create class syllabus, upload assignments and class projects, and create reminders for class activities. When students log in to their own account, all they need to do is search for their class, subscribe and they will start receiving email or text reminders for class activities.
Mobile phones can now be used as a studying tool
The Study Boost is a software application which can be connected with mobile phones for a more effective study session. To use this app, you will need to create your own account, and create study questions and upload them on your phone. In addition to that, you can also share your batch of study questions with your classmates, teachers and friends, to give them the opportunity to review while they are on the go.
Capability to access Twitter even without a smartphone
There are times when making a Twitter account is effective when it comes to the students’ learning experience. However, not all students have access to the micro blogging platform. Although they can use text messages when participating in Twitter, this can be a costly process especially if they are not subscribed in unlimited texting. The good thing is, there is a free resource called Tweet Call, which students can dial and dictate their tweets. These will instantly show up in their timeline as a voice to text translation.
There are many ways that mobile phone devices can make the learning process easier for both teachers and students. It is just up to them to learn how to maximize the device and resources available.
