In a story reported by eschoolnews.com, Michigan legislators want to put more money into educational technology. The media however, reported that they wanted to buy iPods for every student in the state. You read the article and decide.

"It would open up a different way of teaching," Pominville said, noting that Apple's iTunes online store has free educational audio and video content for students. "Kids will love it. This is what they use all the time." He said teachers have approached him about doing podcasts and recording lessons, but the district doesn't have the money.

What caught my eye was the fact that Apple's iTunes would be making more educational content available to K-12 schools the way it does for colleges such as PennState and Harvard, also known as iTunes U.
