Ipod and Nintendo DSI

At sSt. Michael’s we have borrowed both the iPods and the Nintendo dsi’s. We have found that the iPods are much more useful.

The dsi’s are limited with what you can do with them and we really only used them as a warm up or early finishers activity during maths time or as a treat for Golden time. One of the games requires the children to speak into them which wasn’t great when other children were working and therefore the children couldn’t use this feature.

The iPods on the other hand are fantastic and there is really no limit to what you can do with them. We used them for research on the internet and maths and language games. The children thoroughly enjoyed using them. The range of apps that are available are fantastic and there are lots of really good free ones available too.
