Next week we'll be presenting our iPod Touch pilot at the NCTIES conference in Raleigh, NC. Our session is titled Touch the Possibilities- Using iPod Touch mobile computers, To enhance... and disrupt... teaching and learning. We'll have iPod Touches on hand for an interactive session on Thursday. We'd love to meet some of you in person if you're planning on attending the conference.

I would love an opportunity to talk to you. I am looking at writing a grant to get iTouches for an AP Chemistry class to go completely paperless. Please contact me if you have the time I would love to discuss this with you. ldooley@lfcsd.org

Leeann,
I'd be happy to share with you what we've learned about the iPod Touches. Feel free to contact me here or through email or Skype. I've listed all on my contact page. There are great apps for Chemistry!

Dear Susan,
I have a presentation at the end of next week on using ipods as emerging technologies...I need to think of an activity that i can use with a class of 26 people using the iPod touches, so it becomes an interactive class..can you help me?

Sure, I've done this now with a few different presentations. I'm thinking you're presenting to adults, is that right? Is this is the case, I would suggest a couple of things. First, if they don't know the tool, they'll need time to hold it in their hands and play for just a bit of time. They can do this while you go over some features placing yours under a camera doc. They'll listen a bit but mostly they'll explore which is good. Then I'd move them into small collaborative groups of 3-4. A couple of my favorites, Google Earth no big ah-ha's except they're holding it in their hands, it will find their location and tell them to find their way home, or to some exotic location they wish they were at... Another, Bookworm, let them do a quick times competition, Blanks as well for a quick vocab competition. Show Me the Money is a money counting timed app, simple but harder then it looks. The challenge for educators is to take a look at what's there and make the connections to there curriculum. Not a hard task, there are a million connections. Hope that helps. Let me know if this isn't close and I'll try again!
