Oh, I LOOOOOVE using the iPod touch in my classroom. Thank you for sharing. I just need to have a whole class set. We use it on a rotational basis. Mostly used for a few apps, podcasts, and classroom made movies.
I mostly have found free apps, but I like gFlash+. You can create your own flashcards on google docs, then use on the touch. FlashMath is another favorite. I have created worksheets for kids to actually write and solve the math problems, then click on the answer. It's great for speed practice. And finally, my favorite: crayon physics. It's a paid app, but awesome on the SMARTBoard, or iPod touch.
Thank you so much for sharing about this! It is such a great tool that we can use with our students. You should look into writing a grant to get funds for the class set!
