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

Free Technology for Teachers: iPad Apps for K-12 Students | Elementary Technology Education | 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.

iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 6: The Best $100 You'll Ever Spend - Teaching with iPad

iPhone 6 Plus vs. iPhone 6: The Best $100 You'll Ever Spend - Teaching with iPad | Elementary Technology Education | Scoop.it
This post is for those considering an iPhone upgrade. Those of you who currently have an iPhone 5 or older are probably due for an upgrade with your provider. If you have already purchased an iPhone 6, it is great phone and upgrade from Apple's previous models. Please let us know what you think after reading this!

My colleague and good friend Matt Przybylski (@iphysed) and I love discussing Apple products. He has had the iPhone 6 plus since day 1 (almost 3 months ago!). I have had it for just over three weeks. We wanted to take the opportunity to share why we think the 6 plus is the better phone. Upon some discussion between Matt and I, here are some reasons why, if you are debating which iPhone to get next, the iPhone 6 Plus should be the one you get.
