What iPod are you?

Following up on yesterdays post, I decided NOT to stay up to 2am local time to watch Steve Jobs Special announcement nor watch the Engadget live blogging…but waited until this morning to quickly read up on what Steve had to say.

No big surprises really, however, something that interests me is how is this going to change the face of media in the classroom? More students will now have access to portable media devices which are readily affordable (not by me yet!) and play video. Will the flow on effect mean that instead of just audio pod casting, should we be moving to video pod casting more, so that students (and I think especially the commuters) can get quality things to watch in the down time of life. Being a regular commuter on both train and bus, I think the new nano will be a hit. The classics and touch will do well, but the price point and versatility of the nano will make it sell well, but the size will suit the commuter, it can sit in a pocket with no fuss and be available quickly. The touch does present an interesting issue for schools. With the inbuilt wi-fi, if we add wi-fi- access to our classrooms, we could have notes, etc available for download during the class, as well as other resources available for download.

Yet again Apple has moved the playing field and we will see how it affects our schools!
