How Educators are Finding Ways to Mix it Up by MindShift.kqed.org

MOBICIPNEWS on July 19, 2011

At Mobicip, we recently read a great article by Frank Catalano, "How Educators are Finding Ways to Mix it Up", published by Tina Barseghian at Mind/Shift.  The  article is full of ways teachers are increasing the use of technology and mobile learning in the classroom. Catalono writes: "It’s clear that digital resources and technology are on the upswing in schools." 

He also shares a great question and concern: "So what should education companies learn from these wildly varying, yet deep, implementations of technology in classrooms? For one, modular—and modifiable—educational content remains a strong need, as evidenced by comments from both students and teachers. It probably comes as no surprise that if these educators aren’t getting resources they can chunk and change from traditional publishers, they’ll turn—and are turning—to free content and Open Educational Resources."

Mobicip content filter is the solution for those teachers and students. Mobicip is the leading Internet safety and parental control service for mobile devices like the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad.  Mobicip is now offering a new Windows 7 content filter for parents and educators to ensure their children’s internet safety while browsing the web.

The best-selling Mobicip Safe Browser app has been consistently rated among top paid apps, downloaded and used by tens of thousands of parents and several K-12 schools and school districts in the US, and was recently recognized by the 2010 Parents’ Choice Awards as a Top Mobile App. Mobicip's dynamic content filtering includes a new YouTube filter and Linux content filter for parents and educators to ensure their children’s Internet safety while they are on the web.
