This makes a lot of sense to me. My students are too young for it, though (:. I wonder if there’s a way I could adapt it for 3-5 year olds.

Clarke Central students using iPhones as a new kind of textbook
By JOE VANHOOSE - Athens Banner-Herald

They go from store to store, scanning a list of items with a special iPhone application that reads bar codes. On Wednesday, a quick scan of products like laundry detergent, basil, apple cider and vegetable soup showed their prices at competing stores and websites.

The students make a list, factor in the taxes and shipping costs and then email it to their teacher, Philip Walter. This community-based instruction is a new kind of teaching, and the iPhones are a new kind of textbook.

Walter is using technology to acclimate students with everyday tasks like shopping, planning and even having a conversation.
