Hi my name is Tom Stanley and I am excited to be apart of this discussion. Mobile technology in the classroom can be used for field research, group work and more. One area that I feel it can be used for is to help the "couch kids" get through school. Just think if they could access an education 24/7 from anywhere they are. I approached my school district, the Lucas foundation, apple about the idea and was turned away. I also felt that it would be great to help kids during disasters...my wife is a nurse and it would be great to come in to give educational and medical help to kids. I presented this to unesco ... No deal again. Theses are just a few things that mobile devices have the potential for....:-)

Tom, I love your passion. But from my experience in making change in education; you have to take the initiative.

May I suggest you, you reapproach your school district with a proposal to conduct a study with a group of 10 to 20 students, that you will monitor their academic progress with your Mobile system against a similar group of students, AT NO COST TO THE DISTRICT.

Once, you have the data, you meet again with the school district and then attend the next School Public Board Meeting to state your case.   

Albert

thanks for the advice and I will try it. One thought, they would have to fund the mobile devices.
