Happy 12th Birthday iPod! [The Beginning of the Mobile Revolution]

mLearning Revolution

Apple iPod vs. Diamond Rio MP3 Player. Twelve years ago yesterday, Steve Jobs and Apple introduced the first iPod using the amazing tagline: 1,000 songs in your pocket. With those words, a simple little device changed the way we listen to music, revolutionized an entire industry, and in my opinion launched the modern mobile revolution. Happy 12th Birthday iPod!

The Mobile Learner

Here is a video of how one teacher (who was fortunate enough to obtain a full class set if iPod Touch devices) is using new technologies with 8 year old children to help them learn.  Tags: edushifts iPod in Education ipod ipod touch This video raises a number of questions for me: What lesson can we learn from this?  What is the role of experimentation of new methodologies in the classroom? Who is the ultimate driving force behind initiating such a change?

Mobile Learning Edge

According to sources at Twitter, it will be much easier to Tweet from an Apple device than to use Facebook from the same device. iOS5 will be backwards compatible with the current generation of iPods, iPhones and iPads, so this has huge implications for users of those devices.

When is an ipod not an mLearning device?

mLearning World

There has been a debate over this for a while, but today’s new ipods seems to have started debate again! My take (commented as jnxyz) is that “no one ever said the ipod was built as a ed device. I’m only aware of one portable digital device that ever truly has been (OLPC). Until all schools get OLPC’s or similar, that’s our educator’s lot I’m afraid… Or is there another alternative device out there?” See also these previous articles here about ipod’s and education: - Let’s get the ipod’s in schools debate started!

iPods in Education Part 12: Customized Learning Using Apps

The Mobile Learner

There has been a gap of several months since I last shared ideas in the form of a blog post on the topic of using iPods in Education. While the introduction of the iPhone and the iPod Touch has changed the rules in how handheld devices can be used in education, this series has laid dormant as I’ve been in the process of catching up with the technology. As I did not own neither an iPod Touch nor an iPhone, I didn’t feel confident that I could confidently discuss the benefits of using such devices in education. This is where the iPod Touch comes in.

This blog post is in response to all the digital flash card websites that I’ve been coming across lately that are offering teachers digital flash cards for iPod for a fee.  Ultimately, digital flash cards that are placed on an iPod are images and ‘flipping’ the card is simply moving from one image to the next.

The Powerful Combination of Mobile Devices and Learning Apps

In discussing the use of mobile devices, it is easy to forget that the educational and productive power of mobile devices comes through the integration of the devices with other tools.

Making Content on Small Devices Look Great

mLearning World

Yesterday, I found a great article on the Opera Developer's Forum about making the best use of a mobile device's screen. Making Small Devices Look Great Snip:     In this article "device" means a small, mobile unit such as a smart phone or PDA. Instead, we should ask ourselves: How does our audience use their mobile devices on the job? When we look at content as something that is beneficial to use on the device versus simply changing traditional eLearning to fit on a mobile device, we will find that it is actually usable and accepted. learing+2.0
