Research App for Road kill Study An iPhone app to let citizen-scientists participate at the scene. Professor asked people to input details about road kill and upload the information to a Web site. Gives the researchers better data, because a phone's GPS feature can send along exact location coordinates (and the app encourages users to take a picture with the phone's camera).
Attendance App Attendance app includes flashcard function that helps instructors learn the names of their students. It literally puts names to faces, if professors add photos supplied by the college. Some professors take pictures of their students on the first day of class and put them in the app.

Mobile Device Study Abilene Christian University Gave Ipods and Ipads to 600 students Analyzed learning outcomes
Results of Mobile Apps Study Students with mobile devices are more connected with teachers and teaching assistants Example: Marking a student absent in class generates an automatic e-mail to the student, who then responds with an explanation. An interactive communication thread gets initiated."
Results of Mobile Apps Study In general, a majority thought the device increased student participation and involvement in class. And even more teachers said the devices increased contact with students outside of class.
Students with iPhones in Study iPhone students in one class watched each video podcast five times, both inside and outside the class. They contacted the teacher much less [than the non- phone students], and they showed clear evidence of being able to do more on their own, and understand new things.
