Our school in 2009 is looking at using iPod touches for students in year 5-8 and also for staff. I was hoping to hear from like minded educators to see if anyone else was already using iPod touches in the classroom and how/what they were using them for etc?

Blogging, visual representation, recording podcast and radio plays, shorter written assigments, catching students up on presentations and media they miss when they are away, text to speech apps are great for weaker readers. I feel like I am just scratching the surface, if you want more specific examples for your program let me know!
Podcasts, record voice in Spanish, record music

Hi Stacey,
I have been using the touch for nearly 2 years. This year with 6&7 years olds. My blog is at

Have a read and get some ideas. When you buy ipods you are buying not one tool but hundreds of tools. It's the swiss army knife for learning.

And......the kids love them and are so turned on to learning,

Hi Jenny our pilot has now ran for 12months with much success across 12 different school settings from primary to secondary and K-12 including stage based, subject based and 1:1 based inititaives. Our project ning can be found here http://ipodtouchclassroom.ning.com

We are in a Pepsi contest right now to win 3 iTouch labs for our school and we need a lot of support. We are currently ranked 9th and need to be in the top ten to win, but we need to stay there until June 1st. Will you please have your faculty, students, family and friends vote for us each day until June 1st. Some people don't understand the importance of this project, but I thought that you guys would! Please spread the word and help us!
