New Blog, New Ideas, New Ways to Learn.

Some of you may have noticed that I have not had a new blog post in a LONG time! This is do to Blogger shutting me out of my own blog because I was “marked as spam”…? Apparently I am not the only one with this problem. So… I have finally broken down and found a new site to host my blog, WordPress!

I am very excited to begin my blog again and share with you my mobile learning experiences. If you are new to my blog, my name is Travis Allen, I am 19 and the president and founder of iSchool Initiative, a student led non-profit dedicated to revolutionizing our education system through innovative technology. If you want to learn more about my company and team, feel free to check out our website.

For those of you who don’t know, I am a mobile learner. I take my iPad and only my iPad to all my college courses at Kennesaw State University. I do not own pens, paper, books, calculators, printers, ink, or a backpack. I am a true 21st century, digital learner. I am here to give you a student perspective on learning.

What do you think of the new blog outline? Do you like it better then my old blog? Answer the poll below and comment with any suggestions for improvements.

I plan on writing at least one post a week, so check back here regularly if you want learn about my progression as a mobile learner and the latest news on iSchool Initiative.

  1. I just saw an interview of you on Wes Fryer’s blog ( http://bit.ly/lqVCYr ).

    Abilene Christian University (my alma mater) has been doing exactly the sorts of things you are advocating with their Mobile Learning Initiative. They also hold conferences and publish reports about mobile learning that you might be interested in.

    I also just made a post about ACU’s new Learning Studio on my blog ( http://design4learning.net/2011/acu-learning-studio )

    Dear Travis,
    I am a Speech Language Pathologist, 55 years old, and technologically frutrated. I know it’s out there, but I can’t get at it. I was in the audience while you spoke (twice) at the Palm Beach School District on Monday. I was sitting behing the row where your brother and teammates were. I am so impressed, and so thrilled to hear you saying what I have been saying for a long time, but no one listened to me. I do not have your skills, but I knew 50 pound backpacks were wrong the day a little (maybe 80 pounds) girl went to put hers down on a chair behind her, and her legs flew up in the air, were sticking straight out, like 2 carrot sticks. She was trying to regain her footing, but could not. Her likes were scissoring through the air, but hse was weighed down desperately. I had to grab her and get her out of the backpack before she got hurt. People were laughing at her, but it was not at all funny. It made a lasting impression on me.

    I am going to pore over your website, and try to determine if I could get a grant to get one of every new and awesome device there is.

    Also, if you want to do an experiment, you could use me as a before and after example. I am very funny, photogenic, and willing to put myself out there.
