Does anyone use I-pads as a listening post option? Are school journal stories recorded as mp3 anywhere?

    I use my iPad as a listening post in a new entrant classroom since I don't have a CD player.  What I do is put any ready to read books onto my itunes and make a playlist for it.  (They send them to all schools with a CD now). Then I set it playing through my apple tv to my speakers.  I just plug in a 4 way splitter to the speakers, I bought one quite cheaply from Smiggle which the children plug into with their headphones.   Then when they need help I control it from my teaching table and there's no worrying about it stopping or the tape being chewed or CD being scratched.  If I want to talk to the class I just push pause so they can hear me.  Works for me.  You could also record older buddies reading a story or have your big books read by the class to listen back to.
