Doesn't every kid over the age of 8 already have one?... Somewhat joking
but my kids both ages 11 and 13 are ecouraged (almost expected) to bring
phones or iPod to some of their classrooms.  I thought at first that they
were telling us storries, but in fact when we looked into it, many teachers
(including within our school) were in fact embracing phones and some mobile
apps.  Might be a bit more tricky to find enough "supported" android phones
in the classrooms, but I'll bet you could find at least a few in each
classroom already.

It is a great video though and it does inspire me to get my cardboard out
and stick those lens' into it!
