"iPods helping languages click" (Philadelphia Inquirer)Perry White (aka Mark Oehlert) Mar 05, 2006 - Show original item(story link)Just read these two quotes from the story..... "It has sparked interest from other schools, and more than 100 educators from the Northeast are expected to attend a conference at the school Wednesday to learn how to create iPod-based lesson plans." "A dozen Spanish and French classes at Moorestown Friends use the devices. The school spent about $10,000 to buy about two dozen iPods, recorders and accessories."
Mark Oehlert points out this example of how some are using the iPod to teach language. I think this sounds like a good application. The devices will not only supply audio for the course, but just think of the amount of information that will be available via the existing network of podcasts.
