Lucy discusses how the team found that teachers are sometimes uncomfortable about the way technology is changing classroom dynamics. She suggests that through dialogue with learners, teachers can develop a meaningful, pedagogical approach to using these new teaching technologies. The guide provides support with this in the form of a planning tool to help teachers exploit mobile learning and mobile pedagogy to the full. In addition, Lucy offers some useful teaching ideas on how to use mobile phones effectively for various aspects of teaching, such as assessment, encouraging rehearsal and reflection, and measuring progress.
