Lead Teacher Day

Saw an interesting video on students in California using ipods in class for their learning.  Belinda showed this after showing her photos of her Apple Road trip.  It was very thought provoking in that it demonstrated how learning is changing so fast with ICT.  I wonder what will be the PC equivalent to Apple in this regard.  I know that teachers are trialling cellphone use in high schools here in NZ but not being a big cellphone user myself, I know I lack the knowledge to totally understand how all this works.  I don't even know if I am ready for the concept.  I really liked how the students were engaged and responsible for their learning.  I am not sure that I like the idea of being paperless in regard of dictionaries and atlases or even just practising reading fluency from a sheet of paper but then, I am a confirmed book lover and hate the idea of curling up in bed on a Sunday morning with an ICT device (laptop, or ibook, or phone) to read.
