Classroom Objectives and Procedures
One of our third grade iPod touch classroom teachers, Mrs. Nakamura, utilizes the iPods throughout the school day for ELA, math, science and social studies. One of her most effective uses of the iPod touches is during literacy centers. She has developed specific objectives and directions for students to follow during literacy centers. Her classroom iPod touch procedures add to the effectiveness of the integration of the iPod to support student learning.Mrs. Nakamura's iPod touch Procedures

AverMedia Document Cameras
Our iAchieve teachers are using AverMedia Document Cameras to display and model how to use their iPod touches in the classroom (oh, and they also display and model other work for students!). Aver USA has some really great lesson plans on their website that have very creative ways for integrating the document camera in to lessons. Check it out:
