1 Ideas for using the iPod Touch / iPhone / iPad in Learning Languages

2 Menu du Jour. Practical ideas that you can use in your classes. Make the most of what the students already have. Get your students working independently: connected 24/7 learners. Motivate different learners.

3 Warnings! iPods will not replace computer access. I am not an expert! Your students may not be experts either. What do your students use their iPods for? Many of today’s ideas are stolen! (Apologies if they are yours.)

4 What is an iPod Touch?

5 Why use iPods in class? Many students are carrying a powerful computer in their pockets. Some students will be more motivated. We have very little time to teach our students in class. Less drain on our resources – less waiting, for the dictionary, the video camera, etc. Fun and cool!
