Tony Vincent’s session, “I Didn’t Know You Could Do That With An IPod” was very well received. Tony always does such a great job of helping educators find new and interesting ways to use technology tools.
Much of his presentation is contained on his website, www.learninginhand.com. Specifically looking for the iPod ideas? Check out his iPods in Education page. Tony has some really great ideas for you!
One other tip Tony shared with the group is the Vixy beta site: www.vixy.net. If you want to convert a YouTube or other similar video to a file you can play on your computer or iPod, you can use this tool to do the work for you. By pasting the embedded video code into the site, you can choose to convert the Flash Video File (FLV– format of most uploaded videos) and change to mp4 for iPod, mov file for Mac, avi for Windows, and 3GP for mobiles.
