  1. After viewing this video, I was excited to see other like-minded people that feel that the iTouch has a place in the classroom. I would love to see this device replace all the expensive books and other paper resources that school districts must purchase and store in every classroom. However, I’m not entirely convinced that the current (or future) applications developed for education and used on the iTouch could replace all of the grade level subject matter and student learning expectations established by NCLB and adopted by the school districts. I feel at this point, the applications that are used in the educational setting are great “tools” for reinforcing subject concepts, as a resource for standard reference materials, logic/strategy games, communication, organization, and reading. However, I can’t see school districts buying into the idea that the iTouch could do it all; although, I truly wish it could.
