Using iPod and iTunes in the classroom

Apple has just published a 41 page PDF entitled: Getting Started: A guide for using iPod and iTunes for teaching and learning

It includes:
  • Overview
  • Education Content for Use with iPod and iTunes
  • Adding Content to iPod Using iTunes
  • Managing iPod and iTunes for Student Use
  • iPod for Professional Development and Other Uses
  • Accessorizing iPod
  • Curriculum Ideas, Success Stories, and Lesson Starters
  • Resources
  • Appendix: iPod 101

And if you don't already have an iPod, you can get a free iPod nano (after rebate) with the purchase of a mac through Apple's "Back to School" promotion. K-12 educators are eligible for this offer, not just college students.

Great blog, Jim. Thanks for the useful tips. We teach teachers how to use iPods and iTunes in their teaching - and this post is perfect.

Keep up the good work,
