St Marys City School Mobile Learning Technology

If you haven't yet yet picked up on the work by Scott Newcomb and colleagues in Ohio you should.
Scott's school district has taken the great step of allowing every 3rd to 6th grade learner a mobile learning device. In my earlier post I mentioned how the US is catching up fast in the mobile space .
Scott's website is a great place to start if your looking for ideas , acceptable use policies helpful hints. It could save you hours of trawling the web and maybe costly time consuming mistakes. Now I am not saying cloning but look at it take ideas and give them your own twist/flavour . Now I am a fan of working with learner owned device but in primary (and secondary) that can be tricky so Scott's and colleagues approach is one way to proceed. .

But great work by Scott colleagues and his learners needs shouting about .

The strap line to the project of

The 4 C's with MLDs - Critical Thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity

alone makes it worth visiting.

go on have a look I am planning on interviewing Scott later in the summer so anyone got any questions leave them as a comment.
