Learning from a phone?

One of The Simpsons episodes shows us futuristic learning that can go wrong.

Judy O’Connell gives us a more realistic idea of how technology can change teaching in her blog when she talks about  the soon-to-be-released Educate: The Ultimate iPhone and iTouch App for Teachers.

Educate is an iPhone/iTouch application designed to support teaching professionals at school, uni or college. It will allow you to:

  • plan your lessons
  • monitor student attendance and progress
  • engage with learning by posting content to your Moodle learning space, and accessing critical tools, eg. voice recorder and camera.
  • implement effective teaching strategies
  • collaborate with other Educate users through Facebook to discuss pedagogical practice.

It does make the robot look rather clunky.
