Classroom iPod touches & iPads: Dos and Don'ts Do delete content. Since you are mirroring the computer's iTunes Library onto the iPods, deleting items from iTunes will delete them from the iPods.

A quick search through your favorite search engines should give you a pretty good idea. If the results you’re getting are mostly from Amazon, Barnes & Nobles, or basically any book review sites out there, chances are, you’re searching for a commercial book.

Exit tickets are a powerful way to get instant feedback on student learning, reinforce learning intentions or essential understandings, find out any questions or misunderstandings students may have or even find out if they can apply their learning in different ways. All vital to enable us to plan to best meet student learning needs. Exit tickets can be used at the end of a lesson, series of lessons, unit of work or even the end of the day.
