Event Details

Computers in schools - wouldn't smartphones be better?

With all the hype around getting laptops, desktops, big computers of any kind into Kenyan schools, what about mobile phones? Might smart phones, with their easy of use and growing screen size be a better tool for students?  Say one iPhone per child or one iPad per teenager?

mLearningSmartphones for schools could be more viable (cost, personable, and battery life) than computers. Yet computers have the form factor, training programs, and applications for education.

Join Wayan Vota, a noted expert on ICT and education to explore the role of mobile phones (and computers) in Kenyan education on Friday March 4th, at the iHub.
