It’s all about the apps..

Well, this week we are back to our usual one-week unit, this one on the divisive topic of mobile phones (available Friday 24th November at 10.00 UK time). Most teachers have a bit of a love-hate relationship with these mobile devices. We know that they can be useful in so many ways as there’s so much power packed inside them and so many learning opportunities in the apps you can download, but at the same time they can be incredibly distracting for students during the lessons. We don’t want to skirt this issue. In fact, we address it head on at the start of the unit but then go on to explore how we can exploit these device in and outside the classroom.
