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.
