Free Technology for Teachers: iPad Apps for K-12 Students

Free Technology for Teachers: iPad Apps for K-12 Students | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Many of you are already aware that I maintain a few other blogs in addition to FreeTech4Teachers.com. One of those is iPadApps4School.com to which I have applied some lessons that I learned from making mistakes with this blog. One of those mistakes was not making it easier to sort resources according to grade level.

On iPadApps4School.com you can sort app reviews according to grade level category. Simply click on the grade level category in the sidebar to find apps appropriate for the age of your students. You can find elementary school apps here, middle school apps here, and high school apps here. I also have a category for pre-K students. If you want to be notified when a new app is reviewed, you can subscribe to email updates for iPadApps4School.com.

Games to Ignite Brains - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS

Games to Ignite Brains - IPAD 4 SCHOOLS | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it
The other day, I noticed one of my daughters playing a puzzle type game on my iPad. It was obviously challenging and often frustrating but she kept at it regardless. The game was direct problem solving and my girl was deeply engaged. It was then I had an idea. If any learner who found themselves disengaged from a school task had permission to select from a list of problem-solving, “brain igniting” games, it might mean they return to the task more energised to tackle it or suggest other solutions.
