Perspective - create audiovisual stories | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it

Perspective is a platform for exploring, creating, and sharing audiovisual stories. Today's storytelling involves a mishmash of apps, websites, blog tools, and technologies. Perspective simplifies all this by combining the essential elements of storytelling into a single iPad App.

50 Best iPad Apps for STEM Education  | Online Universities | EDUcational Chatter | Scoop.it

OnlineUniversities.com released this blog post on May 30th.  They have compiled their recommendations for the 50 Best iPad apps for STEM.  I like how the blog post starts off with "General" STEM apps recommendations and then addresses S, T, E, M individually with apps that meet those individual fields.

 

So, take a look at their list.  If you fill they have overlooked some great STEM apps share them as responses to this post and together we can collaboratively build our own list.
