Here are 2 things Jason referred us to that I think we might pursue regarding Apple and mobile education.
- The first link is to the Apple iPhone Developer University Program. The program allows universities to create development teams with instructors and up to 200 students and provides a number of development resources as well.
- The second link is to the iPhones App page. To access the App Store you click on the link on the left. This opens iTunes (you have to have it installed). Then on the left of the you can access the app store, and beneath that their are app categories including education. I have just begun browsing these. There are tons and may take awhile to go through. I am also looking on the web for education blogs that might narrow down the search for the best to use for our programs.
Leading the Webinar are Chris McLean and Greg Rhode, partners in the e-Copernicus consulting company, and John Windhausen of Telepoly.

- iPods in Education Movie
+ Josh created this movie April 2008 for a presentation to my District, but expanded it last summer.
- Learning in Hand
+ Josh consider Tony Vincent the iPod guru, but he’s really all about handhelds in education. Check out his iPod page for ideas!
- Here’s Tony’s take on the movie I made about the iPod Classic in education: http://learninginhand.com/blog/2008/09/ipodject.html
- Apple Learning Interchange
+ Josh was happy to see Jerome’s link to Karen Thompson’s site via Springfield school district in IL. Not only is she an Distinguished Apple Educator, but she’s not just selling the product, she really believes in the iPod Touch in education.
- Other Schools?
+ Josh started a list (about a year ago now) that has the name and number of iPods at certain schools. I’d love it to be updated, but there’s not enough buy-in. I’m thinking I should just limit this to my home state of IL and use ISTE’s local branches, but I digress… I try to keep this wiki updated with news stories about iPods in education I hear around the net, but as I focus more on my study, the less I collect.

If information isn’t online, it may as well not exist. In the latest sign that the world of traditional print has become a world of hurt, the American Chemical Society is reported to be planning to switch to an online-only publishing model for its journals.
“Last week, the head of the US branch of Oxford University Press noted an event that was striking, if unsurprising. When grading an assigned paper, a Columbia University professor found that the majority of his students had cited an obscure work of literary criticism that was roughly a century old. The reason? Because the work was in Google Book Search, while much other (more recent) work was not….”
