Flash Cards on iPod

The Tech Fridge spent part of last week in Austin keeping warm at a math conference. Got home just in time for snow and sleet. Lucky me...
Browsing through the Classroom 2.0 forum yesterday, I found this great idea for an additional use for your iPods. Tucker Reeck used his ActivBoard (the Promethean interactive whiteboard) to turn the "flip chart" or pages into flash card jpegs. Then those jpegs can be added to multiple school iPods. They can be a center activity that students do on their own or with a para. Don't have iPods at school? You can also put the jpegs online and have students download them at home. Another great idea to take what you are already doing (flash cards) and use technology to get kids to practice more.
