Apple donates 50 iPods
Apple has to Gracemount High School in Scotland, enabling pupils to look at ways that the devices can be used to teach languages, as well as other classes. Whizz-kids at the school have won a prestigious competition to develop the potential of the latest iPods as teaching aids. After a last-minute hitch threatened to put an end to the deal, local MP Nigel Griffiths stepped in to make sure the school received the iPods by persuading Direct Line to provide insurance coverage for the devices so that pupils can take them home to work on the new initiative, according to a report from Scotsman.com. The iPods will arrive at Gracemount High later this month, according to the report.
