Many teachers are using their personal smart phones as a technology tool in the classroom. These devices allow teachers to take role, quickly send e-mail, use apps to solve discipline issues and to fill the learning environment with music.
For those heavily invested in the music end of things, yesterday iTunes finally rolled out “iTunes Match“. According to iTunes, “With iTunes Match, even songs you’ve imported from CDs can be stored in iCloud. And you can play them on any iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Mac, or PC — whenever you want and wherever you are, without syncing. iTunes Match is just $24.99 a year.”
This only pertains to iPod Touch 3rd and 4th generation, the iPad, iPad 2, and iPhone 3GS or later and devices must have iOS 5.0.1. It will work with Mac or PC with iTunes download 10.5.1 For those wanting access to all of their music in the cloud, this will be the way to go if you can swallow the stiff annual price.
Thanks to “The Loop” for this information!
