iPhone termed the Ultimate Study Machine

With gigabytes of storage, dimensions comparable to traditional note cards, and a full color screen, the iPhone is the ultimate study companion. And, unlike many of its smartphone competitors, the iPhone and iPod Touch have huge appeal for the younger crowds that generally flock to study materials.

Several educational technology bloggers have been writing about how the iPhone or iPod Touch can be used to aid learning. Tony Vincent, a former teacher who writes the Learning in Hand Blog, wrote a series on "12 Days of iPod Touch and iPhone". Interestingly, he compared the iPod Touch as a learning platform to netbooks, and concluded that while each has its unique pros and cons, he would like to use both as aids in his classes.

It is an exciting and frustrating time to be in educational technology in the US. Exciting because there is lots happening, frustrating because schools are struggling for funds due to the economic situation.
