Mobile Learning 4 Special Needs is exactly what the name describes. A wiki with about everything you need! Tutorials, apps listings, accessories, discussions, reviews and lots more!


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.


Recess Duty not only lists effective educational websites and apps, but also tells you how they were used in the classroom. He has resources specifically for middle school, favorite apps  for 09-10, a great document called Essential Elements of Effective iPod Touch Middle School Classrooms  and lots of "tips and tricks". This is an example of directions transferring a textbook to a student's iPod Touch....
