School that hands out iPods wins award...

According to an article in the Independent a school in Glasgow has won an award for an initiative that results in children winning iPods.

On seeing the headline I thought this would be an education related story but the iPod prizes are used as an incentive for the students to eat more healthily.

The overall story is one that we already know - iPods are extremely attractive to students.

I am left with the thought - wouldn’t it be great if they were being used not just to encourage healthy eating but to encourage and increase engagement in education.

I’m preaching to the converted here though!
