Will mobile learning save or destroy education?
Professor Susannah Quinsee, City University London Educause horizon report Michael Gove: One of the big concerns teachers have is that their capacity to keep order is impeded by students bringing in mobile phones or flip cameras.

They are either texting or showing each other pictures, including porn, or getting someone to misbehave and recording it to post to friends.

News of the World, 2011 http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/notw/_news/1256414/Gove-slaps-down-yobs.html Increased use of the internet and mobile phones are undermining pupils’ capacity for independent study and promoting poor grammar.

The Telegraph, 2009 http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/6163309/Internet-and-mobile-phones-are-damaging-education.html Detractors English language lessons are providing a blueprint for the way that mobile phones can be used to deliver education opportunities to communities in some of the poorest parts of the world

The Guardian, 2010 http://www.guardian.co.uk/education/2010/dec/07/language-lesson-mobile-phones-lotbiniere Supporters The opportunities that mobile computing presents to higher education seem boundless, and the story of mobile computing will be written by those with the vision and imagination to take risks.

What are the opportunities for using mobile/text in your area? http://www.iabeurope.eu/media/48466/mobile%20consumer%20insights%20march%2011.pdf Scepticism Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country. Students use these devices and then throw them away. The American virtues of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Business and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.

(Federal Teacher, 1950) Students today depend upon paper too much. They don’t know how to write on slate without chalk dust all over themselves. They can’t clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper?

(Principal’s Association, 1815) Students today can’t prepare bark to calculate their problems. They depend upon their slates, which are more expensive. What will they do when their slate is dropped and it breaks? They will be unable to write!
