All things mobile

Mobile phones – which significantly outsell computers annually – are becoming a critical focus for technology companies (and, less intensely, for educators). A panel at Davos, with corporate leaders, details the intent of many to create an advertising model around mobile phones (how long until access is free, but ad-supported, like Google’s search model?). Wesley Fryer presents a more academic focus on the use of mobile phones: “We don’t have to use cell phones to help students cultivate their capacities for ethical decision-making and become actively engaged in their own learning journeys, but I think cell phones can be extremely useful tools if we want to pursue those pedagogic goals together.”
