Firstly I assume you are trying to stir up a bit of debate here – no one seriously thinks an that using an ipod touch is the same as playing a piano – do they?
We are buying some ipod touches (and also buying some apps) for use in our maths dept & I’m really looking forward to this, but they are just a tool, they are not the Swiss Army knife of teaching resources. There will be many great things we can do with them – and rather a lot that we can’t. There are some things that no touch screen product can do (yet?).
So no, the arrival of a set of ipod touches is not going to consign scientific calculators or any other piece of equipment to the bin; but it will open up some exciting new learning opportunities, which is still a no-brainer, but not for the same reason.
