Can a smartphone be a tool for learning?

Post by skpandey on Mon Jul 25, 2016 9:37 am

Smartphone is still used to aid learning, but through controlled access.But what we can't say is that if mobile phones were being used in a proactive way this can't also be beneficial. Basketball

Dual aspect

Post by Shubham Patni on Mon Jul 25, 2016 8:50 pm

Smartphone can be a tool for learning if used in a proper way . They can be used as an alternative for computer as it can perform various tasks that a computer perform . There are various educational apps and learning applications available on smartphone which are not available on computer . Also , with smartphone we can access our mails and various other accounts more quickly and can make an instant reply on them . For example - with Google Drive we can able to create presentation , excel sheets and write a short essays and all .
But on other hand these smartphones can become a major distraction in a learning environment if students don't use it properly for learning purpose and make use of smartphone for playing games and conversation or chatting .
So in my point of view smartphone can be aid as a tool for learning and should be used properly for learning purpose in this era of technology oriented world .

smartphone as a tool for learning..

Post by PGFA1621 on Mon Jul 25, 2016 11:11 pm

Yes, smartphone can be a tool for learning because of the following reasons:-
Portability: Smartphones are small and lightweight when compared to laptops and tablet computers. They can easily be carried by anyone, anytime and anywhere. Mobile learning is now convenient and flexible because of the smartphone’s portability.
• Low Cost: Because fewer materials were used for smartphones, they are less expensive than desktop computers.
• Energy-Saver: Smartphones run on smaller amounts of power than desktop and laptop computers.
But at the same time there are many cons of smartphones:-
Size of Device: Despite the fact that small smartphones are good for portability, their size adds to the possibility of getting stolen or lost. Moreover, their screen is so small; some users might find texts hard to read.
• Battery Life: Most smartphones can last only about two to four hours. Once the power runs out, it has to be recharged, making it immobile.
• Usability: The keypad is too small on some smartphones making it hard for some users to type. Yes, detachable keyboards are available, but that will just add to the cost.

Yes, a smartphone can become a tool of learning for any individual person no matter of what age he/she is. In addition to it, one can easily learn anything and anywhere just with the internet connectivity in their mother tongue or in any Language which a person knows. Now a days smart phones are not much costly, as they are easily available in market in a very cheap rate also. So it is much easier now to become an "E-learner" (electronic learner) by the means of this smartphone. On the other hand, there are some drawbacks also for using theses smartphones as it affects the eyes of the users for using it for a long period of time. It also have some radio frequencies which are harmful for the brains.
So, smartphones can be a good tool for learning but one should use it wisely and periodically. In other words the person should not get addicted to it.

smartphone as a tool for learning!

Post by Komal Khanna PGFA1623 on Tue Jul 26, 2016 6:59 pm

The use of smartphone is growing in this modern era. it is used for calling and also for other features. learning can also be done with the help of smartphones, not just only in schools or colleges. the person just needs to concentrate on his/her work and play around with mobile phones. it can surely be helpful. we can take down notes and then transfer to the laptop, with smartphones presentations can be created. through mobile learning we can search any relevant topic on internet(google), through are mobile camera we can create videos, for eg.- already happened with me, we were two people to create a short advertisement in our 5th semester, we did it with the help of mobile phone. how helpful it is. we can have chat with our teachers on whatsapp. if having any doubt we can call or message them and ask and the solution will come out. if used positively, mobile can be very helpful for learning.

we can use a smartphone as a learning purpose. I agree with all the point what highlighted by you all already. I have one opinion for learning is; learning can't bound you between the age group of people, knowledge of a person, what degree you have; according to me, learning is all about what skill you have , and how much you are capable enough to increase and showcase your skill in front of people.
we should be capable enough at every time at every moment to show them who you are and I think the smartphone is a better tool for us to do this job.

Undoubtedly, smart phones are beneficial in many ways. It is that tool which makes our life easier. But we are now a days becoming fully dependent on it. Instead of proper and useful usage we are focussing more on its other usage. For any small or petty things we requires smart phones which directly relates that we becomes paralyzed. So usage of technological gadagets are helpful and good to some extent, beyond which they can create some harmful effects too

Everything has pros and cons, just like our topic about smartphone a tool for learning?
Yes its true smartphones is the quickest, easiest and smartest way to learn only if you have the urge to learn as smartphone can be a great device to distract. using smartphone for research purpose or to increase your IQ can be good learning but playing games or surfing on social sites can be a way to relax but not a tool for learning.
So one can say that its device which can be useful tool for learning as well a big distraction in ones life.

Yes I support the statement smartphone as a tool for learning.

Post by Himashish Bhagabati on Wed Jul 27, 2016 11:00 pm

I stated this comment of supporting smartphone as a tool for learning because the era we are living in is a time management or we can can say it as a time constraint period. It seems like "life is time". With every objective we complete we are fully aware of the time. So in this time management period we are not lacking behind in gaining knowledge. And to gain knowledge in a scheduled time, I state that smartphones has made my life a bit easier to learn as well as explore lot of things. Smartphones has made me to save and conserve my time in some alternate work to perform so. It has me to connect and keep it touch with my network; as we all know that "network is your networth". Through the smartphones, we are being linked or connected to various applications which as a result with a simple click makes us to get the desired knowledge at any period, any place, in any situation. What more can we expect with the kind of facilities we get in a smartphone as a learning tool. And I have a firm believe that it will give us a lot more innovative ideas and features so as to enable us to get the realization of a practical world.

smartphone is a very good tool for learning anywhere anytime.smartphones as the name describes are the phones with extreme smartness.If we look at our present and future there is no life without smartphones or we can say we are highly dependent on smartphones.
smartphones contains a lots of applications related to studies, general awareness,puzzles which all increases our knowledge when we use them. In smartphones we can access internet and search for any information we need on search engine which adds to our knowledge.we can do a lot much using our smartphones but it depends on us that we want to gain knowledge from that technology or we are just misusing that.

Yes certainly a smart phone can be used as a learning tool. There are many apps, which are being used as learning tool. Mobile dictionary is one of them, that is used widely among all age group. Apart from this, easy internet access opens the door to the world. So it can be used as a portable learning device.

Yes I do strongly believe that smartphones are the best medium for learning nowadays.It had become a part and parcel of day to day life.Students learn in a way they are comfortable.Smartphones provide the ability to get answers quickly. In some situations, a student may not ask for clarification to a question he or she has in an open classroom. So to quench their thirst smartphones are the best medium. They can even connect with other students round the globe and expand their learning world. There are many educational apps available in a wide range of subjects for all kinds of learners. These game-like exercises encourage playful competition among students, while enhancing the way they learn new ideas.
Smartphones allow for social learning. Smartphones can allow students to work in groups on projects, sharing information and discoveries. They can move toward a common goal, again, in a format they are comfortable using.

Yes, I admit that unlimited functions of smartphones can be very useful for students. To begin with, a good smartphone has a great number of apps that can be at hand for every young person. Every student is able to download educational apps for free. There are high-quality apps that can help you train your speaking and writing skills. When you learn foreign languages, you can download an app that trains your grammar and listening. You are able to learn new rules and listen to the correct pronunciation of new sounds. You are able to download books and read texts in the original. This function is extremely important, because some books cannot be found at your local library. Moreover, you do not have to carry a heavy book in your bag all the time. You have everything in your portable smart device. but it also depends on an individual because their are pros and cons for every thing. One has to choose whether they use this tool efficiently or not.

Yes, a smartphone can be a tool for learning. We can also say smartphone as a tool for smart learning. Many applications are available on our phones to learn and many of them are free of cost. On smartphone we can learn many thing related to our study or any thing of general awareness in diffrent languages also. It saves or time as well as energy. We can also improve our LSRW by using smartphones as everything is available on google. It is a tool for learning for diffrent people of diffrent age groups. In today's era we need not to carry various books, dictionaries, maps etc.. just a smartphone is enough.

Yes, smartphone is to a great extent a tool for learning. As many of the students in schools as well as at higher education level use smartphones for learning. Rather being a luxury it has become a necessity for everyone. As small as a 5th or 6th standard student has a smartphone these days. Its something you can carry in your pocket and learn anywhere and anytime you want. Photos related to notes, mails, links to certain e-books are done these days using smartphone. Some applications have been developed related to learning like byju's and many more. Most of the schools and colleges have developed applications to guide students for various purposes. It is helping people develop in a better way, but it should be used to a certain limit as it has disadvantages too. But if used in a better and positive way smartphones can be a great help for learning.
