10 Sites to use with Mobile Phones in Education

The use of mobile technology has opened up a whole new world in education.  Terms like BYOD (bring your own device) is a common place occurrence.  These devices has allowed educators and students to learn, teach, and study in a whole new way.  Learning is no longer limited to the classroom and can occur in real-time almost anywhere.  I've decided to list my favorite sites that can be used w/ mobile phones for educational purposes.

This list is in alphabetical order.

10 Sites to use w/ Mobile Phones in Education
  1. Audioboo - A great site w/ mobile apps for all platforms, for recording one's voice and then embedding it into a site/blog.
  2. - Is an instant mobile network for connecting people and tracking topics.  Also, a great way to manage cell phones from a web environment.
  3. ClassPager - CP takes the classroom "clicker" to the next level through the use of text messaging, polling, Q/A, and the ability to update students/parents at any time.

  1. I use StudyBlue with Evernote and as a standalone app. I'll check out the others. Thanks!

  2. Mobile phones have allowed educators and students to learn, teach, and study in a whole new way. But some teachers resist cell phone use in class because they think of it as a phone or an entertain device only. Thanks for sharing it....
