"What I learned in this Mobile Learning Mastery Series I immediately put  to use in my teaching curriculum. I have engaged my students using their own tools to help them develop a sociological imagination. They are using their Smartphones and tablets to comment on sociological theories  and concepts and engage each other both inside and outside of the classroom. My students like to see their comments projected on the projection  screen at the front of the class. One student stated in class the other day that "this is the only class we can come to and tweet and it's ok by  the professor." Then she tweeted her comment while in class."
