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.

yes, smartphones are education tool. They are capable of performing many tasks that a computer can perform and more. Some applications that are available on a smart phone are not obtainable on a computer. Having a smartphone is like having all the information in world right in your hands which is very beneficial to teachers because they wouldn’t have to answer a plethora of questions from students when they can simply ask students to Google any questions they have. Smart Phones will teach students to be independent and find things on their own. Surfing the Internet will provide students with an unlimited amount of information for research papers and homework help. If there's something a student doesn't understand, there's a higher chance that it can be explained on the Internet. Fast and convenient, smart phones are the answer.

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.

According to me smartphone can be a tool for learning because of the various reasons.
As we know a good smartphone can have a great number of apps that can be used or it can be of use to many of us. Every student is able to download educational apps for free from various stores available.
But every things come up with a good and a bad same goes with smartphones too,as it is an easiest and smartest way to learn but only if we have an urge to learn, using smartphone for study purpose or to increase our GK can be good learning but playing games or using for various social media platform can be a way to relax but not a tool for learning.
Hence if used in a way to learn things than it is a boon otherwise a curse to anyone.

Yes, smartphone can be a tool for learning if it is being used properly. As it is providing various learning applications which are not available on computers but can be easily assessed on mobile phones. Nowadays it has become necessity rather than luxury. Various schools and colleges have also introduced certain apps which can be used only on smartphones, so basically it has become a very important part of life if used properly.

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, a smartphone can be a tool for learning. A smartphone is smart because it has an operating system which manages the gadget’s hardware and software. It is no different from the operating system of a desktop computer. An operating system also enhances the gadget’s performance and battery life through management of power consumption. The most popular operating systems are Symbian, Android, iOS, BlackBerry and Windows Phone.

With the proactive use of smart phone 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.

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, 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.

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.

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 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.
