Yes it can by using avi cables (apple brand) they cost about $50 AUS - it only shows movies, sounds etc - not the home page or internet pages of iphone/ipod touch
Thanks for the info, Stacey.

Too bad it doesn't support LCD use for Internet; I was looking to less laptop use and more iPod Touch use when doing presentations.

Thanks again.

Yes the touch can be connected to an LCD projector but you will need to purchase either the media cable with the composite ends (red, white, yellow) or the easiest is to purchase either the Apple or Griffin media docks that also charge the units.
I was at the Christa McAuliffe Tech confrence in NH a few weeks ago and the apple presentors showed us a projector, kind of like a document camera that was about $65 dollars. You had to turn the brightness down, to about 25%, on the touch and put a piece of cream or off colored paper behind it to really show what was on the touch screen. It worked for a room of about 50+ people. If I can find the notes I took, I will let you know who makes the one he used.

That would be great to look into. I have been encountering similar questions from the teachers at my school (how to show the iPod touch screen for the things that aren't video or music related). Right now our iPod Touch program is in its infancy. About 15 teachers were given iPod Touches to be part of a pilot program to discuss how we might use them in our classrooms.

I'm looking at using the screen splitr as a way of displaying info. I have talked to several people who have said it works
Also, you need to jailbreak your iphone/ipod touch for this (can't jailbreak for newest updates).

A quick and easy fix that I will use is a document camera focussed on the ipod touch screen and connected to a projector. Not perfect but it works well enough for instruction!
