The Importance of Still Teaching the iGeneration

PHILIP and ANTERO D. GARCIA In this essay, Philip and Garcia argue that visions of mobile devices in the classroom often draw on assumptions about the inherent interests youth have in these devices, the capability of these interests to transfer from out-of-school contexts to the classroom, and the capacity for these new technologies to equalize the educational playing field. These overly optimistic portrayals minimize the pivotal value of effective teaching and are implicitly or explicitly coupled with political agendas that attempt to increasingly control and regiment the work of teachers. Through discussing student interest and issues of educational technology in urban schools and highlighting the affordances and limitations of the texts, tools, and talk that teachers might facilitate with these devices, the authors offer a teacher-focused perspective that is sorely missing in the contemporary debates about using mobile technologies in schools.

Evernote for Education

The desktop version sync's all of the data to your computer (good for backup) and you can also export your notes in a variety of formats for backup. You can create new notes via desktop, web, or mobile version. You can also use your camera phone or web cam to take a snapshot and Evernote can even recognize the text in the image. This is very useful for capturing signs, posters, printed memos, and more and then being able to search for text inside the image.

You can upload attachments to your notes in Evernote to keep documents organized with the notes they go with. You can also email notes, clip web pages, record audio notes, and scan papers, receipts and more into Evernote. I love Evernote. Does it Cost Money?
