Since it looks like we’re about to embark on a pilot with World Language teachers using iPods in their classrooms, I was happy that Alec linked to this new post at edugadget outlining some potential uses. Great stuff. I love the idea of an iPod walking tour of our campus for new staff. We’re on 72 acres, and it would be so cool to set them loose with a podcast that gives them a bit of history and color while taking them on a tour of the grounds. I know I’ve asked this before, but am I really strange that these kinds of ideas really makes my skin tingle? (I need to get a life…)
Apple has a whole page of suggested uses, of course. I’m always impressed by their focus on the educational uses of their products. Even the Microsoft rep who I spoke with at their little get together last week lamented the fact that “the competition” did such a great job in this area.
