Our take: Blog writer Heather Clayton Staker examines how to turn an iPad into a learning handheld for her children and other elementary students, including what programs and apps she would add to their devices.
Today’s blog is a how-to for converting an iPod Touch into a tricked out e-learning handheld for pre-K and elementary students.

Background: This Christmas we’re flying and driving with our kids. I’m sure we’ll bring along copious goldfish crackers and sippy cups, but I’d rather avoid the traditional craziness of our bursting carry-ons. I’m looking for small devices that will be easy to carry aboard, simple for our kids to use, and make better use of the travel time than a DVD player. Plus, on normal days my kids spend too much time in the car shuttling to activities. I’d love to fill that void with productive learning time.
