iRead- Using iPods for Literacy

Here’s a 10 minute video describing how one of our great elementary school teachers is using iPods to help with elementary literacy and reading fluency. The video needs some work1 but the idea is sound and interesting2.

It’s a bit of a HEF ad but they’re a good group that helps fund projects like this so I’m happy to help them out.

1 I’m still learning and clearly I need to keep working.

2 By the way, iRead is not my title of choice. I don’t put i or e in front of anything by choice.
