A nice little reminder that the world is changing

Maybe we should change the one laptop per child project to the one cell phone per child? Might get there faster! This video is from Teachertube.

Actually Now that I've watched this twice. I'm not sure I'm convinced. I'll have to muse on this a bit more but something just doesn't sit right with me. What about you? What are your thoughts? Is this inevitable? Desirable? Missing something?

I think things are quite different in the primary school. I recently had ICT for my set homework task. We brainstormed how we might use a variey of ICTs at home.

ICT homework

One of the tasks was that they could txt me. At least half of my 8/9 year olds had never sent a text message before.

Our school is a fairly affluent one but at that age most kids don't need a cell phone as they get carted everywhere they need to go and their caregivers/parents are still pretty much always at their beck and call for transport organising etc.
