History was made at Howard School of Academics and Technology on Friday, April 30, as ninth grade English teacher Ashley Wilbur became the first in the state to push out mobile content to her ninth grade English students.

Ms. Wilbur is working in partnership with Emantras and Hamilton County Virtual School to pilot the use of MOBL21, an application that allows teachers to deliver study guides, quizzes, flash cards, video and audio content to students via Apple web-enabled mobile devices or any computer.

Ms. Wilbur said her first interest in using the iPod Touches was sparked when she realized that her students had the same English texts they had used the previous year. Only the cover of the book, she said, was a different color.
