Using mobile phones in the classroom

The ICTEV conference is being held down in Melbourne today and I have just checked out Jarrod Robinson’s presentation on using mobile phones in the classroom. He is doing lots of innovative things around implementing ICT in the classroom and his afternoon session on his use of the nintendo wii in his classes is also a great program with lots of potential.

I also stumbled across this great little video made by year 6 students on mobile phones and I can see this would be a great little activity we could do in PDHPE. It is based on the video “mankind is no island” which was the winner of tropfest NY in 2008.

There are lots of areas in PDHPE you could have students create a similar style video and it is an activity I think would engage students and get them thinking deeply about an issue to try and construct their movie.
