iPod for education

Apple is , following the success of several initiatives that have utilized the iPod in the classroom. Apple's new UK website offers several real-world examples of integrating an iPod into the classroom. "Whether in the form of music, talking books, modern language materials or archive recordings from history, audio resources have always had an important role to play in the classroom. However, until recently, most classroom audio content was stored on CDs or cassette tapes, so finding the resource you needed was a time consuming process, and digitizing it for use on a classroom computer was not a straightforward task." Recent reports have highlighted the use of iPods to help language students in universities and secondary schools as well as large-scale deployment to college freshmen for storing lesson plans, recording lectures, and more. Apple offers several real-world examples for literacy, music, geography, history, careers, and art.
