Ask the Children; Mobile Me – Kids speak out about mobile phones

This is a great paper that explores the role, importance and impact that mobile phones are having in the lives or our children (students). I feel that this is important to understand as the phone is no longer just a communication technology for voice-based conversations. They are so much more as they are now moving into the realm of a personal technology where the device (previously a phone) can be used for a plethora of multimedia, communication, research or documentary reasons.

I have been looking into different aspects of cyber awareness that i wish my Year group to be informed aout and explore. I will be posting a few of the clips I have found interesting on YouTube. Hopefull you may find these stimulating as well as potential resources for your students.
