The Redlands Daily Facts of Redlands, Calif., reports on the use of iPod shuffles to aid reading instruction at a local middle school. The iPod shuffles enable students to listen to books they are studying in class. The school already has about 40 shuffles, including some that students can check out of the library. The shuffles are especially helpful for ELL students or those with learning disabilities, who tend to understand a story better when they are able to hear it.
