Mobile technologies are a recognised piece of our lives and a necessary attachment to our bodies. As educators we need to understand and consider the advantages of mobile technologies to education and exploit their use. This chapter presents two innovative case studies which use a mobile technology as the basis for an educational experience, through the exploration of the visual arts education. The mobile technology highlighted, involved the use of the iPod as a resource for learning. The experience resulted in a motivating and engaging experience for the learner through the true sense of a mobile learning experience
