Love my mobile personal assistants

devices You just never know. That message was brought home to me again about 10 minutes ago. I was supposed to go to a website to give feedback. The website was a non event. Not a single link went to said feedback portal. Luckily, there was a QR code to the feedback site. I got my phone and bingo! I was on the right page, I could give the feedback and my job was done. Using my phone obviously wasn’t my first option but I have learned you need to have access to more than one device and electronic instructions need more than one way to get you there. We are living in a multiple option world!! Often, when you are seriously engaging with the online world you do need more than one device. My year 8s last year, some of whom are my year 9s this year, were really good at using their phones and iPads together to create a really efficient study platform for themselves. My year 10s, too , sometimes ask if they can borrow an iPad and when I ask why, it is so they can do one thing on their iPad and another thing on their MacBook. They are really organised, efficient , digital workers. I find when I participate in things like Twitter chats I need to have my computer and my phone. My phone whistles all the incoming notifications which I then know to check on the TweetDeck feed. It means I can be answering questions, retweeting, responding to answers and replies without having to do extra. My phone becomes my personal assistant. At work, I can run my emails on my iPad and do other things on my MacBook. When you use more than one device, the mobile device becomes a very powerful personal assistant which can keep you fully informed but also allow you to access other things while you are doing your main work on a computer.It means the cognitive flow is not interrupted and the thinking processes are smoothed over for you when you are working intensely. Right now my phone will let me know if anything comes up on Twitter because my email is open on my second desktop screen. We have the devices and hardware, we need to put them to work. They are not just ornaments.
