Travis Allen and the iSchool Initaitive by Noah Dalton


Travis Allen created iSchool As a senior in high school in 2009. While using his iPhone during school, his teachers instructed him to stop using it, even though he was using it as a learning tool. Being frustrated with his schools limitations on technology use he began to form his concept on mobile learning. 4 years ago today he posted a YouTube video on his iSchool concept. His concept was a school with no books, paper or pencils, just iPod touches. Personally I thought this was a great idea utilizing the iPod for that purpose, especially¬†with all of the savings for the school. Since then he has an organization of 11 people and has made numerous appearances at schools and prestigious events. As a collage student he only brings one device to class, his iPhone. I find Travis Allen’s ideas to be very interesting and a great idea on what school should be like with all the techonology we have.
