In case you missed it earlier in the month, Fast Company covers the wide range of apps and handhelds in “A is for App: How Smartphones, Handheld Computers Sparked an Education Revolution.”
At Startl, we are true believers in shaking up the education world by looking for the marriage between talented entrepreneurs and the needs of learners. We can make a global difference in the level and style of education through technology, especially with the adoption rate of mobile.
The new connectedness isn’t just for the rich. Mobile adoption is happening faster worldwide than that of color TV a half-century ago. Mobile-phone subscribers are expected to hit 5 billion during 2010; more than 2 billion of those live in developing countries, with the fastest growth in Africa. Mobile broadband is forecast to top access from desktop computers within five years.
The article details iPhone apps such as First Words and handheld devices such as The TeacherMate which is making strides in K-2 classrooms. With the launch of the iPad… where how much can we change the landscape of learning?
