Past, Present & Future of SmartPhones…in the Classroom?

Here’s a fun infographic for a Friday, originally posted on I’m fascinated by the surge in smart device use in classrooms, as you know, and for a few years I’ve been predicting (we’ll see how this works out for me) that smart phone use at school will surpass and eventually extinguish tablet use. I could be totally off base, but it just seems to me that with so many kids already having smart phones and with the price points being more affordable that it will eventually happen…especially in the developing global markets. So I’m curious to see which company will solve the interoperability problem across smartphone platforms…if someone can do it there’s big money to be made in the BYOD market, that’s for sure!

So take a look at this infographic and see if some of the future possibilities don’t blow your mind! Can you imagine some of those integrated solutions being used by students in the classroom?? Whoa!
