An online community for schools using iPod Touches in the classroom
The ability to be able to check email on the go is fantastic. As well I have my calender synched between my iPhone and entourage so it allows me to add a new contact or event on my iPhone and adds it to entourage at the same time. Alarms are great as well for reminders throughout the day.
Timetable and attendance. Can't see these devices as useful learning aids in a full classroom with one unit. Even an additional 4 units (when they arrive) are limited in their application in this setting. We are planning to test them with our one on one withdrawal students. But to be honest, while I see the ipod as a supercharged PDA with useful apps, I am as yet unconvinced as to their real worth in the classroom....at least without major investment by the school. On a side note, I suspect the lack of activity on the Ning may represent similar feelings elswhere....
Can you give me real suggestions?
