The Washington Post reports that Jamestown Elementary School in Arlington, Va., is giving iPods to its students so they can make their own podcasts. Students are using the iPods to produce online radio shows about what they are learning in school. Teachers at the school find the iPods really engage the students, and their decision to embrace them was part of a growing trend of using emerging technologies to connect youngsters with the widest possible audience for their work.
