A School that is Embracing 21st Century Literacy

Check out the St. Marys City School Mobile Learning Project.

St. Mary's Mobile Learning Vision

Scott Newcomb is very excited, and he has good reason to be.

A fourth grade teacher at St. Mary's in Ohio, Scott recently shared with us the work he has been involved in for the last two years at his school, with what he calls the Mobile Learning project.

In an email he sent to us here at the Committed Sardine recently about what he's been up to, he told us about how far the smartphone reach has extended within their classrooms, and what the future looks like for them.

"Every student in our school district from 3rd grade to 6th grade has their own mobile learning device," says Newcomb. "Our goal is to have a mobile learning device in every students' hand from 3rd grade to 12th grade."

Just like us, Scott Newcomb and the St. Mary's City Schools are eager to spread the word about mobile learning and the 21st century environment our schools are headed for. We urge you to check out their website here at SM Riders Mobile Learning.

Newcomb is proud to announce that they will also be presenting this year at Denver's ISTE Conference in June.
