An initiative by a frustrated student, Travis, who found that iPhone/iPad provides infinite learning opportunity which differs from his teachers’ opinion of such devices. Do visit the website iSchool Initiative at http://ischoolinitiative.org/

Travis explained that as a high school student he felt rather bound and trapped by the prison of school that enforced outdated restrictions that did not allow him the freedom to learn. It began with his parents getting him an iPhone for Christmas. He immediately found he enjoyed the endless list of applications on it and shortly after, began looking into educational apps to help in school. It wasn’t long before he realized the amazing capabilities this device would have in education.  He was so inspired by the unlocked potential of these devices that he made the following video, called the iSchool Initiative.
