Your new teacher – Your smart phone!

Lessons are NOT confined to a class and have to be with a human being – teacher. In 2016, we are becoming more aware that lessons happen everywhere! Most of our students do have a smart phone. What do we do with a smartphone? Obviously we use it to phone, message, snap photos, browse the internet, buy etc…

How many people use the smartphone for educational purposes? Very few. Well, there are some schools where students are taught how to use a smart phone and/or tablet in order to understand better their lessons in class. It’s not going to substitute the lesson delivered in class but it will make it more clear. We are suggesting some links to help students turn the mobile phone from an electronic gadget into an educational tool.

Here are some suggested links:

English Language

Mathematics

Geography

Physics

Chemistry

Biology

Religion

ICT

Italian

Spanish

French

German

Maltese

History

Cooking

Home Budget

Business

Graphic Design

PE

A teacher or a student, can make use of audio and video files nowadays in class. It’s not the first time that one has a video that one downloads from the internet or get it from another kind of resource, but it won’t play on his computer! This happens with video files but especially with music, where one encounters several music formats. SMplayer
