    Many commonalities are emerging in these NetGen videos — one of which is the importance of harnessing the power of mobiles in learning. Whether or not you agree or feel that the students are being “whiney” (as many educators often think with such videos) — there is a point to be made.

    I have particularly noticed how kids keep gravitating to the itouch and iphone as useful in school – it has reappeared over and over in these student videos. They were given free reign to picture improvements in THEIR education based upon the research of their generation and they keep coming back here.

    It has me thinking — no conclusions yet, but really, they are teaching me.
