iTunes App Store Volume Purchase
Apps on each iPod Touch will need to be purchased. Recently, Apple began the App Store Volume Purchase Program for education. With this program an Authorized Purchaser for your school or district will purchase an App in bulk. Apple will then send a series of codes that can be used to download the app to your iPods. The codes are similar to redeeming an iTunes gift card and work only for the specific App purchased. Many Apps are available at a bulk discount via the Volume Purchase Page.

This is a sample walkthrough that we are beginning to use at Fullerton School District. Special thanks to the principal of Robert C. Fisler School, Trang Lai, for sharing this.
A must do!
Here's a great resource to follow on Twitter (or perhaps through RSS... pick your poison). I usually find at least one app a week that's too good to pass up! If you find something you might like, GET IT NOW. Sometimes these deals only last for a single day!
iPad today is one of my new favorite podcasts that is a MUST LISTEN for me each week! For up-to-date latest information on iPads, accessories, and apps, nothing beats Leo Laporte & Sarah Lane in iPad today! I've learned some really cool stuff from these folks!
This Week in iPad is another great resource for getting another perspective.
