This podcast features an interview this evening with my cousin, Devin Henley, who become an enthusiastic iPhone owner at 6:15 pm US central time on June 29, 2007. Devin discusses his initial impressions of the iPhone, gives an overview of its applications and features, and reviews the process of setting up his iPhone and syncing email, calendar and address book data from his laptop. Bottom line: The iPhone is amazing! The Safari web browser does appear to be the killer application. (Along with the phone and iPod functionality!) The progress of handheld, disruptive technologies marches on. The variety of CONSTRUCTIVE uses the iPhone will support is amazing to contemplate. Web 2.0 (read/write web) technologies are truly going mobile with the iPhone. How are teachers and administrators going to keep iPhone owning students engaged in class at school without banning the devices? Hopefully they’ll choose to embrace interactive, collaborative educational activities (school 2.0) instead of taking a more reactionary approach.
