Eastchester Teacher Buys and Hands Out iPod Touches as Classroom Learning Tool

In a world where electronics—like cell phones, iPods, and the like—are increasingly banned in the classrooms, one teacher is learning to embrace technology. Maureen Lindell, an Eastchester High School teacher, used money from a pilot program funded by the Eastchester School Foundation to buy 20 iPod Touches for her students.

Lindell loaded the Apple devices, which can browse the Web with WiFi, with various applications and educational tools, including dictionaries, research websites, Shakesspeare plays and more. They have the advantage of being lightweight and easy to use for storing quick notes.
