Using Smart Phones Collaboratively
Posted 20 January 2012 - 08:54 PM
For the first time ever I asked my sixth formers to use their smart phones in a lesson today.
We are studying 19th century Irish nationalism and rather than booking out an IT suite I asked them to use their phones to research Isaac Butt and Charles Stuart Parnell before feeding back.
The research phase worked beautifully but the feedback was a little clunky as they wrote notes on paper (!!) about the character the other half of the class had researched.
I sat there thinking there must be a better way than this. I know about lino, wallwisher and the like which I often use for collaborative research projects and I thought there must be a similar smart phone app out there which students could use to share notes in a lesson like this.
Thanks in anticipation

A possible solution could be to purchase a PAYG mobile for the department (or recycle one of my old ones) and ask the students to text answers through - I know there are web text services out there which I could possibly project onto the board whilst the replies come in - does anybody have any experience of this - would it work?
Am I asking for trouble?
