Previously I posted on the knee jerk reaction by many school districts to ban iPods in schools. On my way home from NECC I was catching up on some of my podcast subscriptions and listened to Eric Langhorst‘s podcast on this topic. I agree completely with Eric’s view on the educational benefits of iPods. To further add to the conversation, my school began last year an iPod initiative at our school issuing an iPod to all our freshman. I have previously posted on the initial results of this program and for those interested I will be updating on this blog the results of this program as it continues during year two. After the information I received at NECC I expect year two, with both freshman and sophomores participating, to be even more successful.
