The iPod Touch in JHAT, Jr.

The point of this page is to offer you tips, helps, resources, etc. on using our iPod touch in the JHAT, Jr. Summer Academy and in your classroom. The goal in getting these iPods into YOUR hands is hopefully to help you see how valuable they can be as a learning tool for your students. If we convince YOU of their value, we hope you can convince your principal, PTA, or other organization to acquire a set of iPods for your school, grade, or even your individual classroom. We are confident the iPod Touch can be a valuable asset to you, as a teacher, and especially to your students.

In the table below I'm attaching a number of "How To" documents. Many of you might not need any tech help, but if you do--no shame in that! I think we're all learning as we go. If you can't figure something out, please ask. If I don't know, I'll do my best to find the answer for you! This is a great page to use our Discussion Tab on and help each other find the answers to questions.
