Ipods to Instill a Love of Learning?

Have heard of schools banning ipods -- but this article talks about a school that is using Ipods for an ESOL class to teach kids how to read.

"Students listen to stories as part of a fluency program designed to develop vocabulary, improve pronunciation and emphasize important words and concepts taught in core subjects. Students also use the iPod's video playback for grammar and reading exercises."

Cool. What kid doesn't love Ipods? Using them in a classroom setting is such a brilliant way to get kids excited about learning. Also thought that using the Ipods at their school open house, as a translator for spanish-speaking parents, was yet another progessive and impressive use of the technology.

So, how do you feel about using Ipods in a classroom setting? Love to hear your thoughts.
