Abiline Christian University in Texas started a project two years ago to give iPhones and iPod Touches to their students. The results are that the students felt more positive and maintained better relationships with their faculty: http://www.acu.edu/technology/mobilelearning/index.html
It’s a cool idea to do, but what about for classrooms where the students have cell phones already? Mobile learning is an interesting new trend. If you attending Idaho Library Association’s conference in Burley this year and saw Chris Haskell’s presentation on mobile devices in the classroom you already know that students can use twitter and cell phones for learning, compiling data, recording data, searching for information, and communicating with their professors/teachers. Check out all of their resources posted at coolteachers.org: http://coolteachers.org/
