This is a short video clip that gives an overview of what the iTouch is and what its educational value can be. It gives several suggestions on how to use the iTouch in a social studies classroom. It is short and sweet and very catchy.

This is a great reference for teachers. This site has great information on how to use mobile technology. One of my favorite features is that it lists all the different subject areas and iTouch applications appropriate for each.

This website includes links to general information and educational apps for the ipod. It is a wiki, so others offer their experiences with using the iPod touch in elementary, middle, and high-school classrooms. There are many links (to delicious pages) to help you manage your iTouch in the classroom, as well as a few insightful videos.

This website is full of resources, tips, and lesson-building ideas. It was designed by a school district that is implementing many iTouches. It seems to be updated often, and has some great ideas!
