ikid

iPhones apps are great for teaching little ones and for saving your sanity when traveling with little ones who are not thrilled to be traveling. ( true for all age groups actually.) Check out the iKid blog. Their older posts had some great reviews too. New teaching materials are being downloaded to my phone as I type.

And look! kiddy lit on iphones!. istorytimeapp.com

And did you know “iPhone moms,” which constitute women (with children) who own iPhones, currently make up 29.5% of all iPhone users." This is from the ikids twitter feed.

So while I am on this subject there's a ton of info on using phones in the classroom. Stumbled across this article today and it makes perfect sense. Yet we still ban cell phones in our schools. This will change but it will be interesting to see how long it takes. Our current system is so resistant to change. So I ask, how can we facilitate a more efficient model. Who do I need to talk to!

Thanks for the sites. We love the iPhone and AA has her own page of apps. She is fascinated by it and has learned so much. Great learning tool.
