Below is a nice infographic showing how students use social media for learning and what aspects of online and mlearning they value. The statistic that jumped out at me was “At schools that ban mobiles, 63% of students use them anyway”. If this is the case, banning them doesn’t work. Instead of looking at an outright ban, wouldn’t it be better to teach students how to use their smart phones to learn?
