Well, we have offered lots of suggestions about using mobile devices and now so has Edutopia. They have made a new PDF Guide available at: http://www.edutopia.org/mobile-learning But going beyond the suggestion of just getting the guide. I am also going to suggest that this might be a good way to really use your mobile device. Here are 5 ideas for accessing and using the PDF on your mobile
- Find your Kindle address and email the pdf to your Kindle. Each Kindle you have registered including Apps has a unique email address you can send files to. PDF's are free other documents may have a charge.
- Find a new PDF Reader for your device. You might tryt: GoodReader for iPad, or Aldiko for Android
- Annotate the PDF. Many of the readers out there including GoodReader from above allow you to add notes, comments or even drawings. There are other note-taking apps that can even do character recognition on PDFs like Evernote
- Share it. Use email, Twitter, Text messaging, Facebook or other tools to share the PDF with your PLN (Personal Learning Network) Don't have a PLN search #edchat on Twitter for a group of tech friendly folks talking about education technology.
- Share it again. Sites like Posterous and Weebly allow you to use a mobile app, text messaging or email to create a blog and new blog posts. It's super easy and superfast and a great way to share with the whole wide world.
