Greetings,My name is LaTonya Simmons as we have seen the ways in which music has changed our educational system has done the same. I am here to share with you the new and innovative way of learning with iPods, a small, slim, sleek device packed with endless learning opportunities.
Every year since iPods have hit the scene they have presented a new model or generation of a previous model. The anticipation keeps Apple’s customers in suspense. Applehas used a variety of advertising tools to promote its line of iPods. The advertising include television and radio commercials, print ads, the internet, celebrity spokesman and women.
Once I tununiversit was introduced iPods began to have a new outlook, its only fucntion was not just to listen to music and watch movies, it was now a tool for promoting learning
