Mobile technologies include any type of technology that can be taken with you and used on the move, as opposed to fixed technologies that stay in a fixed position for use at a fixed time.
The range of mobile technologies is growing rapidly. The term ‘mobile technologies’ often refers to mobile phones and smartphones (that is, mobile phones with in-built computer functions). It also applies to laptops and notebooks, handheld computers such as PDAs and EDAs (personal and educational digital assistants), media players, digital cameras and e-book readers.
How mobile technologies are used in school
Mobile devices, such as mobile phones, can support learning across various aspects of the curriculum. For example:
• in art, pupils can compare the quality and resolution of images taken on different devices
• in citizenship, students can video and upload personal messages of support for safety campaigns
• in geography, they can investigate how topography affects mobile phone reception.
