I strongly believe that smartphones are a good tool for learning. As we all know in this competitive world we need to focus on keeping ourselves updated everytime and smartphones helps us to do that by providing us regular updates on what is going all over the world. It is small and we can carry it in our pocket. For eg. if we are to send a mail urgently and we are not in our desktop or laptop, we can easily do that by using our smartphone from anywhere. So what we can say that it helps us to reduce our time and we all know now a days "Time is money".

Smartphones- A tool for learning !

Post by Diksha Batish on Mon Aug 15, 2016 1:50 pm

Advancement in technology has brought in the concept of learning from smartphones. Learning has now gone beyond the walls of school and the use of smartphones for the purpose of gaining knowledge is the new trend. Smartphones are handy and easy to carry. Moreover, they provide a multi- functional platform like- easy access to information(anytime,anywhere), taking down notes, transfer of files, etc. These days, almost every individual carries a smartphone. It depends on how the person utilizes the multi functional device because in the end, everything has its own pros and cons.

Yes of course smartphone can be a tool for learning if it is used in a good and proper way.
Everything have its both prons and cons and smartphones too have it. It is a portable learning device as it is convenient and flexible. Today, in changing business and technology environment thousands of apps are coming for educational purposes. One type of educational app that is gaining popularity is study tools.
According to the Campus Technology article, smartphones today “have the computing power of a mid-1990s personal computer”. For such a tiny device, that is a lot of power. It is time we accept and utilize smartphones in higher educations, because they won’t be disappearing any time soon.

According to me...Smartphone is a learning tool.Learning does not only happen inside the four walls of the classroom, it can happen anywhere: On a bus, in a museum, at the zoo, in the living room.A user can now take notes and transfer them to a laptop or share them online with a study group. Teachers can create presentations or flashcards. A learner has instant access to numerous websites for questions needing answered. For video assignments, students can record their films using a smartphone and send them to a computer for editing.
Increased connectivity is a major advantage of owning a smartphone, allowing for immediate access to data online, whether one is at home, travelling, or at work. Today we can use our phone to book a movie tickets, find restaurants, and even pay bills from the phone’s web browser.So for me it's a learning tool.

Technology is fast changing and smart phone is a best example of it. Smartphone can be a tool of learning . It is second brain of us as anything we want to remember, we used to save in the phone . Everything is in the smartphone with each and every question's answer. People cannot live without smartphone. Yes, it is easy to carry, the kind of advantage associated with it, left behind the usage of laptop very much. You can create file, maintain and send the file through smartphone. Each age group can easily use smartphone in his way.But the question is that for what purpose we are using , is it for working or for time pass, ultimately depends upon you.

Every day, more and more people are buying gadgets to connect to the digital world. Gadgets are everywhere: Smartphones, music players, tablet computers, laptops, netbooks, etc. If one of them is used for educational purposes and productivity, that’s mobile learning. Learning does not only happen inside the four walls of the classroom, it can happen anywhere: On a bus, in a museum, at the zoo, in the living room. Portability is important for a gadget, but a gadget is most praised for its ability to connect to academic resources with just a swipe of a finger. A user can now take notes and transfer them to a laptop or share them online with a study group. Teachers can create presentations or flashcards. A learner has instant access to numerous websites for questions needing answered. For video assignments, students can record their films using a smartphone and send them to a computer for editing. So in last i want to say that yes smartphone can be a tool of learning.

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.

Yes, smartphone can be a tool for learning but it has both prone and cons:-
Energy-Saver: Smartphones run on smaller amounts of power than desktop and laptop computers.
Low Cost: Because fewer materials were used for smartphones, they are less expensive than desktop computers 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.

The invention of smart phone is astonishing..From my point of view smartphone is a learning tool There are really a lot of ways to learn using a smartphone. Mobile learning is a gateway to tools and resources. It makes learning more personalized and creates bridges over the gaps between teacher and student. The great thing is that it gives users access to tons of content anywhere, anytime. Mobile learning opens up the opportunity to learn all the time..!!

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.
.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.

Mobile learning is not the same as e-learning. E-learning focuses on disseminating educational knowledge through the Internet. Therefore, if there is no Internet connection, e-learning is impossible. Mobile learning is only a part of it. E-learning incorporates mobile learning through conducting learning activities on the Internet.

Yes, according to me smartphone can be a tool of learning. Carrying laptop everywhere is hassle for students so the best alternative is smartphone. The accessibility of educational & other mobile apps, as well as the Internet at their fingertips, can allow students and teachers to communicate with each other and collaborate on projects. And with the help of this apps we can learn and gain knowledge about new things.

I strongly stay with the fact that a smartphone can be a tool for learning because the generation in which we are living is more tech-savy than the generations before...everyone in today's world wants everything available on just a click...whether it be a cab or a meal...so if almost everything can be searched for at a smartphone why will one lag behind in knowledge....
Another reason for backing up my point of smartphone for learning is that neither we have to carry bulk of books for information as in school and colleges nor have to be bounded by restrictions of time...
A smartphone can impart learning everywhere at the will of the learner and at the desired time irrespective of noon or night....
The speed at which smartphone are improving day by day it isn't a matter of surprise if smartphone substitute books in the process of learning

According to me smartphones cannot be used as a tool for learning as I feel learning is not only about accessing internet on your phones the term learning is much more wider it is about the reading, listening to wise opinions, observing things which is happening around us. And also the information available on websites cannot contribute to effective learning.
