Useful and practical resource for teachers well worth a look.

Hi guys - I consider this to be just about THE iPod touch in learning community - so wanted to add to the mix here with some details on the unit I've been implementing this term with learning support students. Rather than just using the touch to help kids learn say spelling or fractions, I took advantage of the fact that the huge range of educational apps means every student can find a unique app just for them - true personalised learning.
I took it a step further also - I made the… Continue

Hi I am a teacher in Melbourne experimenting with the use of iPod touches in the classroom. However I have one major problem, I dont know where on the iPod I input our school's proxy settings. If anyone has a solution, or any other ideas, they would be most appreciated.

During May and June 2009 the Centre for Learning Innovation partnered with scientists from NICTA to trial the mContext application in a high school setting. mContext is a client-server application that was used to deliver a wide variety of digital learning resources to Apple iPod Touch devices used by Year 11 Ancient History students at Merrylands High School.

I have recently had some loaner iPod touches from Apple to see how they interfaced with the StudyWiz and Janison VLEs used by the Suspension Centre at Campbelltown. Unfortunately, only early models were available and these seemed unable to connect to the NSW DET server using the Safari browser. Once away from school they worked fine and access to the learning materials within the VLE was excellent with forms and assessments easy to complete using the iPod. Anyone else in NSW DET using the iPod… Continue

If you haven't checked out these apps they now have uTube videos posted you can watch to see if they'd be good for your students: CountBy, a K-5 math interactive hundreds board and SentenceSpin, a K-8 language arts sentence builder. You can enter each name in uTube and the video will pull up for you to watch. A third app, CountBy, a math interactive times table, should be up on uTube later this week. They've worked well here with real students in real classrooms. Enjoy!

- iSchool Initiative is a website I have come across which has some compelling arguments why iPod touches/iPhones should be used in schools. It is an American site and I have also uploaded their movie to this ning - worth a watch!

Was great to see how the iPods are being used and the more I think about it the more possibilities I see. Charlie is quite enthusiastic and I have emailed our staff here inviting them to join the Ning. We have also determined that it happily falls under the umbrella of PSP, so depending on staff response we can certainly become effectively involved in the classroom.
