Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: Get Smart by Texting w/ @Text_Engine

Text Engine was developed to offer cell phone users a means to search the web using their text messaging service. This is great news for educators and students in low-income and rural communities.  

And that’s a good thing, because while smartphones are popular, there is still a great need for text-only services in low-income and rural districts. There is also a need in districts like NYC that empower students to bring their own devices to school, but don’t have the means to enable students to connect to the internet.

Think of the text capabilities of your phone as a search engine in your pocket?   Great tool and concept.
