About the Dell Venue Pro Smartphone

Invite your students to help brainstorm a fantastic classroom project! Here's some examples of Smartphone Use in the Classrooms to get you started!
  • Mobility helps parents encourage anywhere, anytime learning.
  • Low cost helps educators reach underserved children that are geographically or economically disadvantaged.
  • Encourages 21st century skills like communication and collaboration.
  • Enables a more personalized learning experience by creating individualized interventions. For example creating a personalized reading ‘playlist' of content that targets their individual reading challenges.
  • For algebra and geometry courses, students are using Smartphones as calculators and finding information on the web, watching math videos, and playing educational games. Students using the phones reported feeling more confident about their math abilities were more motivated to take other math courses.
