10 Free Apps To Jumpstart Your iPad Cart - Getting Smart by Guest Author | Digital Education | Scoop.it
"The beginning of the school year is a good time to take out that shared iPad cart and get teachers excited to use it. The hardest part is figuring out where to start. I like to start with getting teachers to understand that you don’t use apps to teach concepts. Find apps that allow students to be creative, and integrate projects with the standards you are already teaching."

Drawp - Kids Can Safely Send Digital Greetings to Family Members - iPad Apps for School

Drawp - Kids Can Safely Send Digital Greetings to Family Members - iPad Apps for School | Digital Education | Scoop.it
"Drawp is a nice iPad app that I recently learned about from Jo Villis. Drawp allows children to create drawings, take pictures, and create audio recordings to send to parents, grandparents, and other family members in a safe environment. To use the app parents have to register themselves and their children. Parents approve the list of people that their children can send messages to. After creating their digital greeting cards students share their work by tapping the share button and tapping the pictures of the people that they want to send their messages to."
