Hi all, In Australia, there's been a lot of interest in handheld learning technologies. I guess this a movement away from desktop or laptop machines, and instead to the cheaper and more common devices like blackberries and iPhones. I've given them a shot in a school I've worked in. We used mobile phones and iPhones to take photos, upload those photos, comment on other photos and have a discussion with community groups. We also made use of Twitter for class and school announcements. I was interested in these questions: 1. Have other educators out there tried to use handheld devices in their classes? 2. How effective have you found these devices?
