Top iPad Apps 2013 FREE eBook - Teq | Elementary Special Education | Scoop.it

"iPads are a great educational tool. In addition to the built in features that can be leveraged to assist learners of all types, the Apple App Store contains thousands of useful apps for teachers and students. 

We believe the right mix of apps is required to help the iPad reach its full potential as an effective teaching and learning tool.

 

Finding apps can be difficult and time consuming.

 

Here is an eBook of our favorite apps that we discovered over the past year, as well as examples of how to use them in your classroom. Enjoy!"

Drs Fernette and Brock Eide at DyslexicAdvantage.com's curator insight, September 28, 2013 11:24 PM

Great review of Ipad Apps - some of these are still 'beta', but they are cheaper than the full software and helpful for students more comfortable with Ipads than laptops.

We've been hearing great things about Voice Dream Reader - and nice to see a more affordable option for Co-Writer...although it still needs more to make it completely compatible with microsoft word documents.


Kurzweil, Learning Ally, Bookshare, Voice Dream Reader, Co:Writer, Prizmo (OCR for the Iphone, Ipad, and Itouch), Quizlet (flashcards), Inspiration Mind Maps and Livescribe Wifi Smartpen.

As autoridades educacionais brasileiras deveriam dar atenção especial a este tipo de material. Contruibuiria muito para melhorar o trabalho do professor, o rendimento do aluno e a melhoria na qualidade educacional.

edshelf is a pretty neat curation tool that in this case  Glenda Stewart-Smith of Surrey School District #36 in Canada has used to put together this collection of iPhone and iPad apps to cover all kinds of mathematical concepts in fun and engaging ways. It’s perfect for going on the road and keeping your little ones busy and learning.
