I just returned from attending the Creating Futures Technology Conference (CFTTC) in Biloxi, Mississippi. The CFTTC is Mississippi’s only statewide technology conference and trade show for post-secondary education. The first CFTTC was held in 1997 and was sponsored by the Institutions of Higher Learning (IHL) and the State Board for Community and Junior Colleges (SBCJC). This was my fifth time to present at the CFTTC. I have always enjoyed the opportunity of sharing my ideas and thoughts on the use of technology to help Mississippi students learn with colleagues at other colleges and universities in Mississippi. For the past two days, I made three presentations at the CFTTC and thought they went well. Here are my slideshows. Hopefully, they are helpful for those who were unable to attend the CFTTC this year.

I came across a YouTube video, iPod in Education, which gives a good overview of iPod and its use in education. The iPod in Education video is divided into two parts. I think both parts are helpful particularly for those who are new to iPods and podcasting. Part 1 covers the basic iPod operations, setting the master volume, Audiobooks, iQuiz maker, exporting quizzes to the iPod. In the Part 2, podcasts, iTunes U, adding your own video, world time, and stopwatch are discussed and demonstrated in the video.
Part 1 – iPod in Education
Part 2 – iPod in Education
After watching these videos, I hope you want to learn more about how iPod can be used in teaching and learning. I encourage you to read “iPod in Education: The Potential for Teaching and Learning,” a white paper published by Apple Computer, Inc.
