ABC's of new literacy

I is for Ipod. Apple has created a mp3 player that not only allows people to listen to music and watch television shows or movies. The iPod has brought about the podcast also. A podcast is a Web-based audio broadcast via an RSS feed, accessed by subscription over the Internet. The popularity of the iPod has increased the amount of podcasts available. Professors have created podcasts of lectures to be made available to students. At Apple's iTunes Store people can also purchase books in mP3 format to be listened to through the iPod. This allows people to "read" books at anytime, even allows a person who is not the best reader to read a book that may be above his/her reading level.
