Davidson College: Stimulating Intellectual Life with the iPod

iPod Does Davidson...TOMORROW!

Stimulating Intellectual Life with the iPod: March 24th Presentation

About one year ago, Duke University began a year-long experimental program to explore how iPods could be leveraged for teaching and learning. In August 2004, Duke University distributed fourth-generation 20GB Apple iPod devices to all incoming first-year students and loaners to upper-class students in classes that applied to be part of the iPod experience. The pocket-sized digital devices allow users to download both audio and text content including language lessons, music, and recorded lectures. The goal was to stimulate creative uses of digital content by providing the iPod devices as a mobile computing device to enhance intellectual life.

ITS’ Instructional Technology Group invites faculty, students, and staff to learn more about Duke’s iPod program. The presentation will delivered by Matthew Gardzina, Duke University Academic Technology Consultant. Please join us in the Sprinkle Room of the College Union at 12 noon on March 24th. Bring your brown bag lunch and we will provide refreshments and dessert!
