Welcome to Last Backpack!

Sep 1, 2012 by

Welcome to the Last Backpack! This blog is intended as a medium to provide mobile lesson plans, ideas, and inspiration for teaching the “Last Backpack Generation”. I refer to today’s students as “Last Backpack” because this is the last generation that will need to carry backpacks. Schools will continue to do away with textbooks, paper, pencils, and smartboards and will continue to improve internet accessibility, encourage the use of mobile devices, and provide students with opportunities to learn anywhere at any time all from a device they can carry in their hand or pocket. It is important that we consider ways to make mobile lessons accessible and engaging for all learners. It is wonderful to have the tools- educators must make sure we allow students to use them!

This website and blog is intended to be very practical so expect to see lots of lesson plans across content areas. If you have a great way that you are using mobile devices in your classroom, please share it by sending in a couple of paragraph summary- make sure to include your e-mail! I look forward to hearing from you.
