    IPods in PreK?

      I recently submitted a proposal to my school division to purchase some IPods for use in my classroom.  Although my proposal as been approved in principle I am now be questioned as to how developmentally appropriate IPods are in a 3-5 yr old classroom.  My superintendent is wondering how a digital device like an IPod can be used to support play, exploration, learning, language, social interaction, etc.

       

      Do you have any suggestions for information I can pass along to support the appropriateness of integrating these devices into my classroom.

      I guess I am facing bigger implementation obstacles than I anticipated.

       

      Thanks again for any advice,
