If you haven't done so already, Teach, check out the mobile youth report 2008, with a free download.
1.1 billion consumers aged under 30 with a combined spend on mobile of a quarter of a trillion dollars ($270 billion)!
Let's see, now. What's the teacher to student ratio for using mobiles? How does this ratio relate to curricula teachers tout as preparing students for the 21st century?
I wonder if we as classroom teachers can ever catch up with those now under 30 years of age and their familiarity with open learning. I heard a speaker at the Democrat convention propose a cadre of new teachers. That makes sense, especially if it can attract under 30s who use mobiles to learn. What do you think?
