Food for thought…

“Pocket is the New Backpack”

Leave a comment

I can’t take credit for that fantastic headline, but thought that I would share it – especially in light of a recent blog post that I wrote both here and on the EdTechTeacher blog – The Mobilization of Research. Recently, I discovered Study Blue, an online note-taking service. They have now launched an iOS/Android app for their products. Their video, posted below, will give you an idea of the power of digital note cards. Instead of attempting to learn from scrawled notes on an index card, students can now combine audio, images, and text to support their learning. Pocket is the new backpack may be an understatement.
