VSR40: There's an App for That

Apple's iDevices are gaining lots of traction in the education sphere lately, and with good reason. They have many of the characteristics of an almost perfect learning device, so it's no wonder so many schools around the world are trying to work out how they might best fit into the learning process. Rob Newberry, Tyler Sherwood and Brett Moller all work in schools that are exploring ways that the iPad, iPhone and iPad touch can be leveraged for greater learning.

In this episode we hear some of the successes and lessons learned about deploying iDevices, we hear about an app written for Brett's school in Queensland, as well as a quick round of app recommendations at the end.
