The Value of iPod Touch Usage in Classrooms

ANITHA on December 08, 2009

I have been actively following the K12 Online Conference 2009 the past few days. It is a unique concept and has a huge fan following among K12 educators. Learn more about it on the conference website, and follow the tweets and mentions here.

Today, I was excited to follow a presentation on "iPod Touch in the Classroom" by Kern Kelly. Several K12 applications including Stanza, Dictionary and Storykit were discussed. It was more like a tutorial session on how to download applications and use them in a classroom environment.

According to Mr.Kelly, there are several tasks that are performed in classrooms today using iPod Touches in his school district. These include but are not limited to technology surveys, self grading quiz, scores, attendance, administrative observation walkthroughs, disciplinary action forms, etc. They use Google docs for most of these activities.

Most of us understand the value of providing an iPod Touch to the students' hands as an educational device. It can more or less replace an expensive laptop or the netbook.However, do these applications and browser keep the students safe inside/outside the classroom? The default browser in iPod Touch allows unfiltered internet including content inappropriate for the students. 

Mobicip understands this problem very well and provides a safe browser with CIPA compliance for iPod Touch. Mobicip, the best selling parental control filter for iPod Touch/iPhone, has played a key decision maker to adopt iPod Touch as an educational device in several schools. If your school is considering to buy iPod Touches for your classrooms, remember to install Mobicip before handing them over to your students. Your students can be safe inside and outside school, anytime anywhere!
