Abstract

Mobile technology is moving forward to a ubiquitous presence in secondary classrooms. Handheld devices can help students become more dynamic learners that are engaged in the world around them and want to learn more about it. Handhelds encourage and enable students to seek understanding of concepts and ideas that are foreign to them through a means that is natural to them. Through a review of literature this paper works to support the concept of expanding K-12 public school curriculum with the use of handheld mobile devices that merge traditional instruction with modern technology. Growing evidence suggests that, as technology devices continue to saturate an increasingly digital society, a natural avenue for delivering instruction that is personalized and intimate is developing via handheld devices.
