I found "History to Go: Why I Teach with iPods" very interesting because within the past two weeks our department chairpersons have been discussing the use of iPods on campus. I found out that the iPod can be used for more than just listening. Many teachers do not want the iPods to be on campus, but maybe that is because they do not understand how iPods can be used for more than just listening to music. I liked how the author's class used the iPods to collect data about the history of the Cuban population. This would also be a good way for us here an Guam to work with the Man'amko (the elders) and collect the oral history from them, especially since oral and written histories are not always the same. Reading the article made me want to learn more about the area in which the authors lives and works.
