It sounds like an oxymoron a “lost smartphone” how can that happen? But wait until you read the statistics supplied by our friends at Background Check (http://www.backgroundcheck.
Read on and shake your head and if you are one of those who have lost your phone the rest of us really do feel your pain. We have all become so dependent on technology; it is so very helpful (most of it) for our everyday lives.
We have become a society with access to an incomprehensible amount a data right at our figure tips, as long as we keep or hands on our smartphones. This is evident in how we can now even provide formal and informal education via mobile devices.
Think of how many apps there are for education from children to adults from formal to informal; it really is amazing.
Two years ago Fast Company magazine predicted smartphones and handheld computers would be moving into classrooms worldwide and that we would be witnessing the start of an educational revolution. Interactyx also thought that when we launched our learning management system (LMS) TOPYX in 2008 for training from the desk-top to mobile – from traditional learning to social learning.
How do you feel about the possibilities of mobile learning? For or against?
Can you live without your smartphone? How did we ever get along without it? Don’t let it slip through your fingers to add to the stats!
