"PEN and paper are not yet in the dustbin of history but the radical transformation being wrought in the learning experiences of year 6 students at Neutral Bay Public School in Sydney's lower north shore suggests time may be running out for traditional methods.

The school has just issued all 145 year 6 students with an iPad as part of a $100,000 year-long trial. Almost all classroom work will now be done on the hand-held device.

''It's better than writing in books,'' says Charlotte Prichard, 11, as she lovingly caresses her new tablet."

"# What’s the impact of messages related to classwork when they’re part of a large stream of messages students receive from friends, family, horoscope advice, sports scores and so on?
# What sort of learning happens best (or is reinforced best, perhaps) via SMS?
# How can these sorts of messages be adapted to students’ progress and how can they be sequenced and scaffolded over time?
# How many students are able and willing to participate in these sorts of educational activities via their mobile phone? Can students afford the texting fees? Do they want to use their text-messaging allocations for this purpose?
# Can we subsidize this sort of SMS traffic for student populations?
# If these sorts of messages between home and school become more common, will there be a way to include parents and parents’ phones in the loop?
# Can these quizzes be sent to parents’ phones so that they can have the opportunity to pose a question to their children? "

The Geo-Historian project is aimed at educating K-12 students to become local historians who create digital content for an audience that transcends the walls of their classrooms. Project activities include the creation of curriculum on how to do digital, local history, training teachers how to apply it in their classrooms, and implementation in local schools. Student-created digital content will be accessible in relevant historical locations in the City of Kent via QR codes that can be scanned with mobile phones.

"Technological fads have come and gone in schools, and other experiments meant to rev up the educational experience for children raised on video games and YouTube have had mixed results. Educators, for instance, are still divided over whether initiatives to give every student a laptop have made a difference academically. "
