Coming out this June, my new book for parents "Help Your Child Learn with Cell Phones"! This book is for parents, grandparents, and educators who are interested in helping their children learn how to use their cell phone as a productive tool for learning. The book is published by the leader in education technology ISTE. The book is an easy read with many examples of activities. Some ideas in the book include documenting learning on family trips, everyday activities where learning can occur via cell phone, using parent's own phones for learning activities, and safety. You can pre-order your book today at ISTE.
Book Description from ISTE:
Audio and video recording, brainstorming, data collection, blogging, research, polling, social activism--what do these activities have in common? They are all educational, and they can all be done on a cell phone! Liz Kolb provides ideas for dozens of fun and engaging educational activities that can be done on almost any basic cell phone (a smartphone is not necessary). She points out the best free web 2.0 resources and ties them to learning activity ideas, and also provides ideas for extending or altering the activities to best match your child's interests and abilities.
