Friendly neighborhood tech geek David Kail is pulling together an education project and is seeking some interesting donations — your old iPhone. Can you help? Get in touch at

Do you have an old, retired V1 iPhone that’s just gathering dust? I am planning to teach an iPhone photography course to elementary school kids in January (Stevens Elementary), and need to get 10 handsets to loan out to the students. I would be so grateful if you were willing to donate (or loan!) your old device. Donors will receive a handome print created by one of my students :)

A little more about the class:iPhones are amazing communication devices, but ironically, they often have the result of isolating the user from the world (texting, gaming, videos, etc). Young children are especially susceptible: they’re drawn like moths, but mostly for passive entertainment. I want to harness iPhone’s power and ubiquity to spur kids to interact with the world in spontaneous, creative ways via a school-sponsored enrichment course for grades 2-5 in iPhone Photography. I need to initially get 15 iPhones to loan out to kids for 2 month course. When I have done this a couple times I will publish my curriculum and device acquisition strategy so other schools (Montlake Elementary) can repeat this course!
