The Whole World in Their Hands
Crompton, Helen; Goodhand, Lynne; Wells, Susan
Learning & Leading with Technology, v38 n5 p16-19 Feb 2011
Grey Culbreth Middle School in North Carolina did not have enough computers to give students reasonable access to the Internet, so administrators implemented a one-to-one iPod touch program. Now every student is connected. This article describes the implementation of this program, the problems encountered and the positive reactions from the staff. Through the use of this mobile device, students have the opportunity to access knowledge, organize their schedules, and work collaboratively. The iPod touch puts knowledge and learning literally into the hands of all Culbreth students. (Contains 8 resources.)
