I created a post on the topic of iPods in the classroom on our school’s blog to see what sort of unique ideas we could get on how iPods could be used to facilitate learning in the classroom. While most of the student comments focused on wanting to bring their own iPods to class so they could listen to music, we did receive some interesting comments on different uses for iPods. My article focused more on the new iTouch iPods because of their wireless Internet capabilities. I have been thinking how neat it would be to have a class set of these so teachers could check them out and use them as an alternative to laptops for Internet research. Of course, podcasting is always a possibility as well.
Is any school out there using iTouch iPods in this way? I would be thrilled to hear some ideas on the topic. Since I don’t own one personally, it would also be nice to hear what users actually have to say about them.
