  • While I think the iPod Touch could be an excellent learning tool (my iPhone certainly is), I’m also the resident curmudgeon about such things so naturally I have a few concerns about this initiative.
  • it’s clear that many people around here are looking at the iPod Touch the same way they do our current laptops.
  • Almost exclusively we use computers as group technologies. We have a bunch of them in a lab and then bring in a bunch of kids to use them for some teacher-designed activity.

  • However, the iPod Touch, and other pocket computing devices, are intended for personal use.
  • They are designed to be customized, personalizing the user’s experience so, instead of everyone seeing the same desktop, we all see ourselves in the device.
  • We just need to find people who are already using these devices in our schools (our IT department sees several thousand a day on the network) and invite them to tell us how they use their iPod Touch.
  • And the few instructional examples noted in the article are pretty much the same as some of the very superficial whiteboard lessons I’ve observed.

Ten One Design Pogo Sketch - 2 views

  •  
    Superbly designed using a light-weight aluminum alloy and detailed graphics, the Pogo Sketch features a look that's hard to ignore.

    The soft tip glides easily over the surface of your trackpad or display, making it fun and easy to sketch, draw characters, or just slide to unlock. Sized for comfort, it does away with inaccuracies common to fingertip-only use.

    Turn your MacBook trackpad into a pen tablet for premium drawing programs! The new multi-touch trackpads allow the Pogo Sketch to control your favorite drawing programs (like, say Scribbles).
