I tunes not only for music

I tunes is easy to access just download it by following this link http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/?cid=OAS-US-DOMAINS-itunes.com. ITunes is a free application for Mac and PC. It plays all your digital music and video. It syncs content to your iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV. And it’s a store where you can find more to entertain you, any time of the day.

Easy acess to pod or vodcasts, the iTunes Store has over 100,000 audio and video podcasts. Each of these can be acessed through the above link, then follow the prompts. These podcasts are free video or audio series, they can be in the visual format of a TV show or in an auditory composition of a radio show. You just download the shows that interest you and play them on your computer, iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV. We have even used iTunes for reseaching scholary items.

I think this could be an effective tool that I could use in my future classes. In this evolving era, most of the students that I will interact with will have resonable knowledge of the current technology,and this I feel will be helpful. With the probility that most if not all the students now have a personal computer, an iPod and some of which will have an iphone, engaging in classroom activities will be more effective. The class could have one topic that they all need to research and then share their information with the other students, I bet that most of them would be interested if they could use iTunes for this.

What are your thoughts, do you think that you would use this tool in classrooms if and when mobile technology is allowed into schools?
