Thanks for helping people to see that technology has a home not just in the classroom, but out in the rest of the world as well.
Electronic nature guides have search, and display capabilities that print versions cannot match. User-made media authoring options enable kids (and adults) to make their own e-guides, neighborhood nature trail guides, podcasts and video podcasts, etc., etc., etc.
Of course paper field guides provide a sensory experience that must not be abandoned--the feel and smell of the paper, etc. And, the type of things learned inadvertently while leafing through books also shouldn't be forgotten.
It is good to have all of the options availble to our students as we never know which one, or which combination of them will spark the imagination.
