  • 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.
