I loved my video iPod for slide shows, demonstrations, images of student
examples... And powerpoints can be saved to it - buy the $17 cable
that hooks it up to the TV, the remote and the little holder - carry it
around with you and hook it up to any TV to share images with the kids.
Videos too. Our technology is in the dark ages, but every classroom has
a TV - I can slip it in my pocket and carry it around. And you can play
I am not very savvy - but even I figured it out in a matter of minutes.
For the money and ease - it was worth the $300.

Subject: [teacherartexchange] Techies-- I need help
I know Diane Gregory has a wealth of classroom technology experience
does Judy Decker. I have spent the evening browsing in all our old
to get our members comments on what technology to integrate into the
classroom. We are prehistoric at my school (except for the computer
dept. which has it all) Outside of an overhead, VHS and monitor and two
"dinosauric" computers that are not worth much when it comes to
graphics, we have
little else. I even bought my own scanner/printer and CD burner.
What would you suggest that we get IF we had the bucks. I know I want
and laptop. Or are there better options? I am 'dum-dumb" about this
