If your district is considering doing the same, you may want to read this blog about their experiences and any tips they share.

Why an iPod Touch in Education is a blog by Chris Webb. He talks about using an iPod Touch for everything except playing music and videos! His blog entry will stand as a list of iPod Touch apps that are appropriate for education.  He may list some "paid" apps, but most will be the "free" ones.

He has resources specifically for middle school, favorite apps  for 09-10, lots of "tips and tricks" and a great document called Essential Elements of Effective iPod Touch Middle School Classrooms
