The personal learning network for educators

I know that this is probably a question that has been out there a lot, but...

My elementary school just aquired a class set of ipod touches.  I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about ways to use them in the classroom.  We have loaded some apps and have set them up for students to be able to take Accelerated Reader quizzes on them.  Any suggestions for grades PK - 5 would be very beneficial!


Thanks in advance!

If you want to check out my website, I've got more listed there.
