Abram on iPod

I am thoroughly enjoying Stephen Abram’s blog. Don’t miss it.

Today, he posts about iPods in Libraries.

How powerful can digital tools such as an iPod be? The Duke University report has some cool answers…

Stephen writes: But what I enjoyed was seeing the uses by music students to play recordings over and over to learn; to record their own work; and to share music in context of discussion. I liked the stories about language students repeating lectures to get all the nuances of the language, to get pronunciations right and to study. There are many stories like this about the power of these MP3 players in an academic context. There are even quite a few library uses! It’s a fairly concise report and worth the read.
