Teachers from several high schools in Trondheim attended the latest course in use of Student Response Systems. The course addressed technical issues, how to use a technology where students use their own mobile device to respond in real time to tasks provided by the teacher, and pedagogical considerations related to peer learning processes.  

Mobile technology provides a new active collaborative learning approach, which let students set the in class terms for communication and interaction in order to get a clearer view of their instant knowledge and perception. The new online Student Response Services (SRS) for Smartphones, Pads, Pc and Mac, are flexible, intuitive, easy and fast to use. The SRS may be used together with any kind of software systems, and for in-class, laboratory and distance training purposes. Use of SRS easily display complex interrelationships between opinions in class, including most relevant or marginal choices, or what is most difficult to understand. It interconnects the teacher and student in a new way
by highlighting learning impact, which it is impossible to do so quickly by using traditional methods.

Mobile devices can be used almost anywhere, they are perfect platforms for situated and context based learning activities, where real life is used to provide stimuli and activity for learning. Students and teachers may integrate mobile technology and learning both in and out of the
classroom, due to portability of mobile devices and their ability to connect to Internet almost anywhere.
