What's an iPod?
The iPod was a terrific
device when introduced back in 2001. Apple has continued to
develop the iPod, giving it a slimmer, sleeker exterior,
while expanding its capacity and capabilities. The user
interface has also evolved as Apple seeks to find the most
intuitive, user-friendly design. The result is a piece of
hardware that anyone, even the most technology challenged
faculty or student, can use with ease.
An iPod is much more than "just a little boombox." At
Georgia College iPods have become an incredible teaching
tool that is being used in many different ways to speak to
today's students in a language they can understand and
We've been using iPods for several years now and we still
use those first generation "oldies" too. Some of our
applications utilize only the audio functions of the iPod
and these "retro" models are perfect for language and music
listening lessons. Newer models, are used for
interdisciplinary applications that link music, art,
literature, even architecture to illustrate and explain
common themes. Now with the advent of the video iPod, we're
doing math modeling and addressing the needs of hearing
impaired learners through animation.

the teaching applications we've found for this exciting
and versatile technology. Be sure to check out what
