E-Learning has given students the opportunity to learn at home - away from the traditional classroom. M-Learning has taken E-learning to another level by allowing students to learn ANYWHERE. Students can study while traveling, on vacation, during breaks or any other free time they may have. Students are growing up in a world where they can “learn anywhere, any time.”
Mobile devices are changing our world and how we gain knowledge. Mobile devices and the content on them have created new art forms, new gaming consoles, new employment opportunities, new languages, new business models and much, much more. As John Donahoe, eBay’s CEO stated during a Charlie Rose interview, “People are buying 8,000 cars a week on eBay’s mobile app”. Isn't it time to throw away rows upon rows of PCs and get students speaking to each other?
The Study It textbook series is for ESL students, teachers and schools. It is designed to help teachers to use formal and informal teaching methodologies.
For the past 6 months, the Study It team has been working on a new Pronunciation Book to help students with their English Pronunciation. It is nearing completion and soon will be available for the general public to download on their iPads.
One of the great things about the Study It ESL Grammar textbook series is our detailed grammar explanations. We provide detail about form and function for each grammar point. Both students and teachers benefit from the detailed information.
Each unit has a very detailed explanation with a number of slides and/or videos explaining the grammar. This allows you to flip the classroom and have students study at home and come to class prepared to use the grammar in different situations. Understanding grammar becomes much easier.

You know the hardest thing about teaching with project-based learning? Explaining it to someone. It seems to me that whenever I asked someone the definition of PBL, the description was always so complicated that my eyes would begin to glaze over immediately. So to help you in your own musings, I've devised an elevator speech to help you clearly see what's it all about.
So the elevator opens up, a guy walks in and out of the blue asks you, "What the heck is project-based learning anyway?" I don't know why he would ask that, but for the purposes of this fantasy, it seems that any Joe-off-the-street is fascinated by your response.
You respond accordingly: "PBL is the act of learning through identifying a real-world problem and developing its solution. Kids show what they learn as they journey through the unit, not just at the end."
"That's it?" the guy asks.
"Well, no," you reply.

My class has one iPad. Just one. But I have found ways to put this single iPad to use in such a way that everyone in my class benefits.
Having mastered one app -- the Show-Me app -- I have been able to create podcasts for my students, allowing them to access my help on their assignments while they are at home or when I am unavailable for face-to-face teaching or tutoring.
After I became comfortable with using this app, I began to brainstorm ways I could use it within my classroom.
