Abstract

There is great benefit in using apps for education purposes. It seems clear that the ‘smart’ experience enjoyed by many second-level students needs to be continued in the third-level learning environment. But many academics have been slow to view apps, and indeed the smartphone in general, as anything other than a distraction, with some banning them entirely from the lecture hall. This newspaper article promotes the need for a shift to regarding apps in higher education as an aid to independent thinking, improved organisational skills and mobile learning.
