    Project iRead is a group of teachers dedicated to the idea that digital audio can be a powerful learning tool for all students. iRead will give you a chance to create meaningful, curriculum-centered audio projects with your students. Teachers are using digital audio tools (iPods, mics, Garageband, iTunes, Keynote, etc. and various accessories) to improve reading processes. Teachers meet on a monthly basis to exchange ideas and strategies. We have started collecting data about fluency rates - this has been very promising.

    At the 2008 Classroom of the Future Foundation awards, iRead received an Honorable Mention in the Inspire category.

    In 2008-09, we are broadening the focus of iRead from Reading Fluency to Language Arts, especially Reading Comprehension. In addition, we are moving from the iPod Nano to the iPod Touch. Projects types will be broader and will also include GarageBand and Keynote. Teachers will upload sample projects to their blogs. We are excited about the changes we are making.
