Title: Individualized Instruction and Learning Using the iPod Touch

Description:
Comal ISD and Grey Culbreth Middle have implemented iPod Touch-based mobile learning programs. Middle schoolers who participate in these programs are each given an iPod Touch that includes restricted Internet access, apps, music, documents, presentations and instructional videos that allow the students to learn on their own time outside of school hours. The panelists will discuss how the programs evolved from concept to reality, cover acceptable use policy, security and deployment management, and anecdotal evidence of the benefits derived by students participating in the program.

  • Comal ISD in New Braunfels, TX, has implemented a 1:1 learning program using the Apple iPod Touch for its special education English language learners.
  • Grey Culbreth Middle School in Chapel Hill, NC has implemented a similar program for the entire 8th grade class.
  • Travis Allen from the iSchool Initiative will also participate in the session and bring a refreshing student perspective.
  • The session is hosted by Suren Ramasubbu (HuffPost blogger and CEO of Mobicip.com)
