with iTunes & iTunes U

Keep students connected to your curriculum from home and back.
Posting assignments and lessons online can help students catch up or review or learn at their own pace. And giving students "all the time" and "at anytime" access to the learning helps students budget time and sets the stage for life long learning skills.

iTunes can help with this task...

iTunes U provides video and audio content posted by universities, state departments of education and many public media organizations and museums. In addition, many free educational podcasts are available via the regular iTunes Podcast Store to supplement your curriculum and keep students connected.  

Download iTunes to your computer (PC or Mac) and have students access the content from home, school. Students can access iTunes U via mobile iOS devices such as iPods, iPads or iPhones by downloading the free iTunes U App   Below are some sample "playlists". You might set up a playlist for your own classes with one "list page" per topic or unit. 

Explore on your own and make playlists that support your curriculum. Playlists can be shared with students on a Google Doc, Google Site (like this).  Click here to learn how to make a playlist like this one in a Google Site.
