Book recommendation: iPod Fully Loaded

iPods are cheaper to give to all your kids to take media home, cheaper than laptops if you are in a 1:1 environment

MY THOUGHT: UNLESS YOU HAVE A MICROPHONE, HOWEVER, IPODS ARE READ-ONLY
- BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GIVING STUDENTS A RO DEVICE AND A RO AND RW DEVICE (RO=READ ONLY, RW=READ WRITE)

Cometrika study on

Kids will spend hours watching media at home, even if it is not assigned
- media is the world of kids
- that is how our brains are wired, for motion, for sound
- kids self-select for media, so we need to get more of that in front of them

Anyone remember when some schools payed more than $800, even $1000 for a VCR? That was the early 1980s

iPods are really good devices, iTunes is a really good piece of software
- iTunes is a killer app

Funny internet archive videos:
- Choosing a Classroom Film (1963)

Can’t show video for “entertainment or reward” but can share clips with students for educational purposes (copyright law)

When adding a video to iTunes, choose IMPORT
- only choose ADD if the video is already in mp4v format
- after it is in your iTunes library, you often will need to do ONE MORE THING to get the video ready for your iPod
- iTunes will convert: Right click the file name (Mac users control click) and choose CONVERT SELECTION FOR IPOD

To adjust the iPod settings for an external device, go to Videos – Video Settings – and choose TV OUT ON, set TV SIGNAL – NTSC, and WIDESCREEN on or off.

There are two kinds of PowerPoints
- the good kind
- and the kind that don’t have embedded videos
