A school in Florida's Pinellas district is experimenting with the iPod Touch as a way to boost math scores for underperforming students. Students must sign up for the pilot program and commit to spending 30 minutes each day completing math assignments on the hand-held devices. Educators say students are so excited to learn using an iPod Touch that they are regularly doing more than the minimum, but some say they will wait to see if the devices improve student test scores before devoting more money to the program.
