I'm interested in testing the touch for use in the classroom. I would love to have a set of 8-10 touches for my class, but I think I'll wait until the next generation comes out, hopefully with a built in mic and camera! For now I'll experiment with my single touch, downloading apps and looking for innovative ways to incorporate a single device into the classroom.
I've already received several helpful tips from Derek Braman (@DerekBraman) about podcasting through Posterous and a recommendation for earbuds with a built in mic. My colleague Karen Bosch (@karlyb) has also been doing some neat things with an iPhone in her 5th grade class. I'm going to borrow some of her ideas as well.
If you have an iPod touch or iPhone, I'd be interested in knowing:
1. Your favorite App(s) and how you use them.
2. Classroom applications for the iPod touch.
3. Helpful Resources for using the iPod touch in the classroom (I've already found some great ideas from the Apple Learning Interchange)
Your feedback is appreciated! Stay tuned for future reports and reflections on using the iPod touch in the classroom!
