simplicity of its design. It is easy to access apps and
children of all ages can access the apps”.

really think the ipod touch has huge merits for learning
in the 21st century”.

6 Queensland Educator’s talk
about using the iTouch
“The most signiﬁcant strength is its size, & subsequent
portability, which is important when considering devices
for integration. The device is easily managed, & can be
simply restored if mistakes are made”.
“I am seeing the rise of iPhones possessed by students.

the iPod Touch I can teach students to use the device
they own in a more productive and effective manner”.
