  • 15. Teacher Reflections My teaching has changed on account of the iPod touch and I am much happier with student results. As I write this, my reading group students are writing mystery stories using Wikitap for information to help with more depth to their stories. It's just so fun to listen to them answer their own questions without my help. I am now the last resort. :-) - Julie Johnson, Teacher, 3rd Grade

  • 20. Teacher Reflections “The best usage was the voice memos to record rough drafts. Students caught errors in their writing and actually revised it when it didn’t ‘sound right.’ Being able to record their voice and use the iPods motivated them to improve their writing skills. It was so nice to have such a useful tool in the classroom that I ended up applying it to all subjects, not just reading. I don’t know how I lived without the iPods before this and I certainly don’t want to live without them from now on.“ - Jacquie Fitch, Teacher, 4th Grade

  • 32. Teacher Reflections “You know that little boy who came up to us this morning? He LOVES the iPod touches. They have made an incredible difference in his math work. He has Asberger’s, and before the iPods, he could NEVER sit through a math class. The kid absolutely LOVES math now and gets A’s. He sits himself up at the front of the room (he likes to be by himself) tucks his little foot up under his bottom, leans on the desk and goes to town on math.  It's simply amazing...” - Gale Hipp, Teacher, 6th Grade Math

  • 39. Teacher Reflections “The iPods are changing non-readers into readers. It's amazing. Thank you. ” - Joan Flora, Teacher, High School Remedial Reading
  • 40. Final Considerations
  • 41. Touch matters “To a novice user, aiming at something on screen with a mouse is like trying to ring a doorbell using a broomstick. The tool that’s between you and the target object is the cause for the lack of directness. You will get used to it out of necessity, but that doesn’t make it better than direct interaction.” - Duncan Wilcox duncanwilcox.com/2010/touch-content-creation/
