Abstract

A veritable consensus of educators, employers, policy makers, professional organizations, and researchers expect that today’s K-12 students know how to effectively use Internet and computer technologies Some have advocated reducing the achievement gap by eliminating the ‘digital divide’ between low and high socioeconomic status schools Resent studies have revealed that mobile handheld digital devices have been used to successfully deliver meaningful educational content, lessons, and scaffolding. Mobile devices proved versatile tools for instruction, as they were used to teach English language vocabulary, science, and geometry. A review of germane literate has found smartphones particularly adept at facilitating synchronous parallel participation and as tools for the delivery of instructional content in and out of class.
