    Here are some tips that we'll be utilizing next year with our iPod Touch/iPod initiative:
    Get the teacher commitment to consistent device use. It should be looked at as a regular learning tool- not a reward or extra.
    Encourage teachers to use the devices as a reading center- headphone splitters can allow more than one student on a device at a time.
    Accountability can be helpful- students can write down a summary of what they did, words learned/ skills practiced, etc.
    ...
    Have students practice often with the voice memo and recording device before starting to use it for teacher data.
    Microphone devices that connect to the charging end are most useful, as the headset can stay plugged in while the microphone is being used.

    Keep the number of apps on devices to a minimum: too many choices can have students skipping from one app to another, especially with younger students.
    Syncing can become an issue if teachers want to keep voice recordings on their computer. We will explore the iPhone configuration utility for managing devices.

    iPods or iPod Touches allow for some great fluency practice. Using the built in Voice Memo app students recorded themselves reading. We reviewed four aspects of fluency with students: self-correction, rate, phrasing/pausing, and intonation. We then provided them with the attached rubric to score their reading. Students listened to their reading several times and gave themselves scores for each area.
    For students who needed to focus on one area, the focus area rubric can be used. This is meant to show progress in that area over time.
    Students also used the voice memo feature to practice composing answers to open ended questions or to discuss story ideas before writing. Being able to go back to their ideas by listening to the recording over and over helped these students with their writing fluency
