Technology + Mobile = Disengaged students?

I would like to start my reflections on the mobile and wireless technology seminar  with some questions fellow teachers raised regards the implications of the use of mobile technologies in education.

As you can guess not many participants are convinced regards the importance of incorporating mobile and innovative technologies in education. Follow are some of the questions  often raised:

  1. “Laptops make a good school better, but they don’t make a bad school good” (Fellow twitter-@dajbleshaw)
  2. “In a class with perfect equipment and perfect teacher – will a perfect teaching and learning occurs? Are the pace, depth and outcomes achieved in this class satisfying?”Reeva, Israel
  3. “What can a laptop/ other gadgets provide that a pen and pencil can not?”
  4. The following movie from the Series South Park illustrate classroom situation when computers are used by students http://vimeo.com/4689743
