Apps for Use in the Classroom
The iTouch may be the bain of some school teachers, but it really shouldn't be. There are several applications designed specifically for use in teaching situations. These applications not only help the student learn, but they do so in a format that they are already comfortable with. This isn't an imposing 400 page text-book, it's their handheld gaming friend (and what better way to learn than from your friend?)
