Eliminating the App Gap: Marc Prensky (PDF)

Should we be concerned about the fact that today there are a great many students who already have phones, or iTouches or iPads with the ability to download whatever apps they need or want (and the accounts and means to do so), and, of course, many more that do not? I think we should absolutely be concerned, because apps include some of the most useful learning tools that have ever been available.
