"I just learned about this wonderful list of iPad apps for elementary students. Mariana did a great job by compiling all these apps into one handy Listly list. I have gone through all the tiles she has included and found them really interesting. As you can see below, every app is accorded with a short synopsis about the grades it targets, the subject matter and the MB capacity it takes. Some of these apps are also accompanied by video tutorials from YouTube. I invite you to check this selection and share with us if you have any additions. Enjoy. "

"Sometimes I forget all of the work I’ve done over the years. Tonight, I was cleaning up my computer…it may not be spring, but it was definitely time! Cleaning up always tends to be a trip down memory lane. I’ve forgotten the sheer AMOUNT of things I’ve created. It really is impressive when you look at 10 years of creation in an hour, it makes you feel like you’ve accomplished something and maybe like you could take over the whole education world if you wanted to. That, right there, is reason enough to do some file clean up! "
