Cell Phones in the Classroom : Learning Tools for the 21st Century

Cell phones in schools… quite hot topic these days. Several schools are banning cell phones at school… but is this realistic? And are schools more than hunting the value of this 21st Century understanding tool? A lot of schools, teachers, and researchers are operating to develop the use of cell phones as engaging and sustainable finding out tools. It is estimated that by 2020, cell phones will replace personal computer systems. So, why should not schools be using cell phones as understanding tools? The future is NOW!

    Middle of the road, technology still feels 1st generation, February 4, 2011

    This review is from: 3M Pocket Projector (3M MPro160) (Office Product)

    The miniaturization of technology is amazing. With iPods and cell phones and netbooks I’ve always had ways to show neat stuff, but generally one at a time. Nobody likes to squint over a tiny screen or deal with viewing angles. Something small and battery powered that I can just stow in my bag and project on any wall would be pretty great. Unfortunately, this just does that and doesn’t quite seem to be as magical as the PR makes it out to be.

    As far as controls and circuit logic goes, it’s pretty plain. Just a stand-by screen waiting for input, volume up and down, mute, battery check, and off. No color adjustment. No 16:9 / 4:3 toggle. No high-power mode when plugged through AC. I know it’s small, but even a simple color adjustment could maximize the range of non-ideal surfaces you can confidently project onto.

    The image itself is fair quality… even though this 2010 model has double the brightness of the earlier 3M models, you still really can’t consider using this in a lit room. That “whether you’re in a cafe .. or conference room” really is a bit of a stretch since the cafe isn’t going to let you turn out the lights. One real annoying bit about the display is the rainbow effect that drives me crazy from early DLP televisions. Newer revisions are fast enough to minimize it, but the red/green/blue flicker is quite obvious with this. I would say that rules out most movement-heavy video sources, relegating it to the world of Powerpoints and camera shots. For those things it should do fine: the standby screen gives a nice big “3M” logo in the center and you could use that for a focus reference. As the machine stays on and heats up, though, it seems to lose focus a bit and it then becomes a little more difficult to readjust because the focus dial is now hot. Last part about the image quality: you should know it’s a 800×600 display, so, even though you could, in theory, hook up a 1080i or 1280×960 WXGA source, it’s all gonna get scaled down to 800×600 anyway. Ye shall find no forgiveness for small fonts.

    Audio is another let down. The volume adjust only has 4 levels so there’s not too much control over it. And even at it’s highest it barely exceeds the noise of the cooling fan. While it’s nice it has a headphone port for more substantial audio setups, I wouldn’t see why you would route it through the projector unless you were forced to (by using HDMI or a dedicated iPod cable).

    Now the stuff that doesn’t matter quite so much. It comes with a lot of goodies. It comes with a flexing mini tripod with a standard mounting post, which means not only can you mount the projector on any standard tripod, you can also put anything on this mini-tripod. It also has a fold-down kickstand to raise it, so, it seems like a duplicated accessory. You get tons of plug adapters which are nice, a composite cable with gender adapters for each cable, and a VGA cable with audio tail. The connections are flexible but I much would have rather had real ports on the sides. There’s room enough for composite, component, HDMI, and a 1:1 iPod cable. It wouldn’t be neat and it would be scattered all around each edge, but at least I wouldn’t have to carry an additional bushel of cables for devices I might want to plug in. Rounding up the accessories is a little carrying case that fits it just perfectly. Unfortunately, with the extra stuff you’ll have to carry around, the utility of a carrying case that JUST fits the projector is a bit silly. I would have been fine with just a snug little lens cap. I think they included all this stuff because after being a little disappointed with what you get you might not want to throw more money at it for adapters and cables.

    Look, I understand it’s a POCKET projector, but really I don’t think the technology is there yet. Seems the biggest limiting factor of the technology is the battery with a leisurely 2800 mAh. If it simply had more juice then they can crank up the brightness, color cycling frequency (less rainbow), and audio. It takes 3 hours to charge but lasts only 2 while operational. All this puts together a ho-hum product that will put off my fantasy of an impromptu drive-in movie date on the side of a tractor trailer in a parking lot for perhaps another 5 years.

    Great product in search of a need, June 20, 2011

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    Greetings,

    I’ve had this handy projector for about two weeks now, and its great at what it does…but why?

    WHAT IT DOES:

    Projects a low-powered image onto a wall. Room needs to be pretty dark for the image to be at all visible.

    WHAT IT DOES NOT DO:

    Project an image when there is any real light in a room

    WHY USE IT?

    Fun, and little else.

    This is not a practical projector for business purposes (i.e., when you have a client to impress). It IS a fun device for hotel rooms to watch a movie on the wall, but I would not drag the device with me in an overnight bag due to size and weight issues.

    PROS:
    Good battery
    Reasonably light
    Good price
    truly portable

    CONS:
    So low powered (30 lumens, when a standard projector is 2000-3000 lumens) that it is impractical for anything other than a dark room
    Speakers are basically uselesss; most laptops or netbooks will have better sound

    CONCLUSION:
    A product in search of a need. Think hard before you buy it as to what application it will address.

    Works well, exactly as advertised. 5* for its intended use, May 26, 2011

    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    This projection device was made for business presentations, home slide shows and alike. It is not a replacement for a one thousand dollar high definition projection system, nor was it meant to be. I found it to be exactly as advertised.

    WHAT YOU GET
    - a light, easily hand-held unit (weighing less than 11 ounces), with 32 lumen intensity and two very small(0.75watt)internal speakers.
    - a small, flexible, tripod
    - a case for the unit, which holds only the unit
    - a wall charger that is adaptable for US, EU, UK and AUS electricity plugs (please note that the voltage in these systems varies, so it is very important that this adapter be used as this insures that the correct voltage and current is delivered to the unit)
    - cables enabling one to use a computer (PC and MAC), camera, and phone as a source

    HOW DID MY UNIT PERFORM? The device I received performed as advertised, specifically (based on using it with a lap-top PC, tested with PowerPoint presentations and movie DVDs):
    - The setup was very simple and straightforward. The unit only allows one to view the state of the battery and to change the sound level from Mute to one of four other levels. However, given the very low level of the sound coming from the projector, the speakers would probably always be used at the highest level unless earphones were being used (there is an earphone jack on the projector). There is a focusing wheel, but no other picture adjustment.
    - Fully charging the unit from a complete discharge took a little less than the three hours stated in the description of the device. While charging, a yellow/orange light is illuminated, which goes out when the unit is completely charged. The advertised run-time on battery is two hours, and I found that the unit lasted a bit longer than this. At 2 hr, 10 minutes, the green light denoting that the unit was on changed to flashing red, and this continued for another ten minutes before the projector turned off.
    - The resolution was adequate for a PowerPoint presentation using 24pt type. The output from my computer was only VGA, which is far from being HD. However, the text was fine, but not as sharp as it is on the computer screen. This is not very surprising, given that the image was enlarged over that viewed on a 15 inch screen.
    - I tested this using a darkened room in the daytime and the same room at night. I found that in the daytime, I got good results with a 36 inch to 48 inch diagonal picture. As expected, the picture was even sharper at less than 36 inches, but going to a very much smaller screen defeats the purpose of the device. At night, when the room was even darker, I got a reasonably good picture up to about 60 inches. The image quality was a function of the darkness of the room and how well aligned the projector was with the screen. I used both a white and beige poster board screens and found both acceptable. I was also able to use the room wall, which is beige and textured. The advertising material suggests that the picture can be used with up to 80 inches enlargement, but at this size there is a further degradation in the intensity and sharpness of the image. Again this is just simple physics as the intensity and sharpness of any image degrades as it is enlarged.
    - The sound for the unit comes from the earphone jack on my computer and as such it is very weak and tinny. I got better results by not plugging in the speakers on the projector and just using the speakers on the computer.

    WHAT I DID NOT LIKE.
    - While the setup and use of the unit is straight-forward, I would have liked a functional manual. The unit comes with a thick booklet containing a Warranty and Safety Guide, but it is in 10 languages (English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and four Asian languages) and does not tell anything about the operation of the projector. There is also a Quick Start Guide in these ten languages, but most of the information is displayed pictorially. As I said, I found the setup and operation easy, but I still had a few questions. It was not clear how to hook up the sound, but I deduced that it had to be through the earphone jack as there was no other way to do this. I still do not know exactly how to read the battery indication icon, as I see little difference between fully charged, fully discharged, or anything in-between. This is not much of a problem since I plan to use the unit when it is fully charged and use it for less than 2 hours, or use it with the charger hooked up.
    - As noted, the speakers are weak and tinny and are not very useful for even a moderate size room.

    HOW DO I RATE THIS DEVICE?
    This is a five-star unit for its intended purpose, which is primarily for business presentations and home slide shows. It is very useful for a traveling businessman as it enables one to carry a presentation on a very small screen laptop or even a tablet and…

  5. Awesome! Did you make your presentation? I’d love to know more about it!

  6. Makes me feel OLD thinking back to the classrooms of the 70′s………pen/pecil, paper, chalk board….

  7. I would like to use a portion of this video as part of an academic presentation. It will be viewed by a group of students in a Master’s course in Education and two professors.

  8. whats this simpsons episode is called

  9. craaaaaap on this video. this video is crap.

  10. Now iphone4 just stay here to wait you,Move your finger! WzHIW7 accuc.info

  11. Limit iphone4, you will get it if you faster than others! 6BOi accuc.info

  12. MUST GO TO MARYLAND….. CAN’T RESTRAIN

  13. Bad idea since we know cell phones cause cancer. The children are the future of the world. We don’t need to raise a generation who’s cancer prone just to make means of education more advanced, technology-wise. People learned just fine for generations and generations before technology was invented, and they are responsible for the very invention of technology on just a paper, book and pencil education. Good things need no revision. The only computer we need is the one in our heads.

  14. @shssh09 Thanks for your note. Please feel free to use the film as you like while keeping in mind fair use rules. The applicable rule of fair use in this case is that the film is for academic purposes, therefore you are ok. YouTube does an amazing job of filtering copy written materials. When I first published this 2yrs ago, they alerted me that the film might violate some properties but that since it is for academic use they would monitor the film. See creative commons for more on fair use.

  15. I would like to use a portion of your video, particularly the intro and the rationale for your work. However, I am concerned with copyright on the Simpson’s piece. May I use the beginning portion?

  16. Wow I found this very interesting and so well scaffolded. Will it be ok if I embed this into a blog we are creating at the moment on the views of this technology in the classroom? of course full reference of your vidoe will be used.

  17. real world as in SLAVES ! cellphones track wherever you go, who you talked to, what you talked about, and when you talked about it . that is the “real world” scenario ! these kids aren’t learning shit . let’s face it ! duh … keep ‘em dumb . that way they are easy to control .

  18. You can now embed the film if you’d like.

  19. SAT scores show us literacy, vocab, and math ability. Considering the US focus’ on providing a free public education to all types of learners and socio-economic backgrounds. Education reform needs to focus on individual needs instead of trying to applying these one fix solutions to a variety of problems. Mobile technology helps with communication, problem solving, and critical thinking all of which better prepares our students for real world scenarios.

  20. For anyone looking to use my film for professional presentations… please consider fair use and creative commons. All I ask is that you follow the model that other like @brankam has provided (above) and let me know by email how you intend to use the film, the audience, platform, and reactions. I hope this helps. Thanks.

  21. KUDOS to you as well my friend for understanding the brevity of this concept. Please embed, link and share… I would love to know how you use it for workshops and the reaction it generates.
