There is more information about the presentation below:

The educational use of iPod Touches through school-wide implementation at our school has served as a catalyst for collaboration and discussion between and among students, educators, and other community members. Discussions about applications and the implementation of this new technology have opened new doors to dialog about teaching and learning across disciplines. The iPod Touch provides instant access to the internet and forces conversations about appropriate, engaging, educational resources available when planning and carrying out lessons. Initial conversations as to how one uses the iPod Touch in the classroom have shifted to more specific, focused questions. Conversation now centers on which apps and sites are used to reinforce each discrete objective in the curriculum. Students benefit daily from collaborative opportunities as they enjoy inquiry based learning. This session explains our journey from planning phase, through our present place where each student carries an iPod touch each day every day.
