iPods have become a ubiquitous medium for listening to music, watching movies, carrying photos and more. A large majority of college students already have and use an iPod on a daily basis. It is a medium that students comfortably utilize in their daily routine. Drexel University’s School of Education is capitalizing on students’ comfort with this technology by integrating iPods into their online and on campus coursework. This presentation will provide a discussion and demonstration of the pedagogical uses of the iPod at Drexel’s School of Education. It will include a discussion on how iPods are used to address multiple learning styles and increase the mobility of online course content. Other uses of the iPod in education at Drexel that will be demonstrated include student created podcast presentations for distribution through websites and iTunes University. iPod Tours created in collaboration with Philadelphia’s National Constitution Center will also be discussed. Finally, we will take a look at what the future of iPods in education holds.
