Plenty of free apps mixed with those you have to pay for..it is a very extensive list of iPad Apps for teaching and learning!

Trude Burnett's curator insight, February 16, 5:17 PM
Technology is an amazing way to differentiate. I would caution us to be thoughtful about what and how we use it. There is no magic pill - use your head and heart when when making decisions.
Lee Hall's curator insight, Today, 10:29 AM

Some of these are not free, but they are not very expensive either.

100 Awesome STEM Resources - Milk and Cookies

100 Awesome STEM Resources - Milk and Cookies | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Why is STEM important? In short, the future job market will revolve around science. This includes all forms of technology, engineering and math. 80% of jobs in the future will require technology skills. Statistics today show that there will be a drastic shortage of job applicants in the next decade with the skills and knowledge to fill these new positions. While only 4% of the nation’s workforce is composed of scientists and engineers, this group creates jobs for the other 96% of the workforce (source). The average professional with a STEM-related degree earns more than double the average national wage. About 3 million jobs are currently unfilled because Americans lack the basic STEM skills needed for the positions (source).

Educational Technology Guy: Padlet - free online multimedia notes and collaboration - great for projects | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Padlet is a free service that lets you create online "sticky notes" that you can share and collaborate on. The notes can include images, links and videos, can be moved and arranged and can be embedded into a website.

It's great for brainstorming, story boarding, organizing, projects and more. It is available online and even has a Chrome app and extension, a Kindle app, Safari and Firefox extensions, and a Wordpress plugin.

It's easy to use and fun and very useful.

30 Reasons I Love Teaching Elementary STEM - Moving at the Speed of Creativity @wfryer

30 Reasons I Love Teaching Elementary STEM - Moving at the Speed of Creativity @wfryer | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
This is my 20th year in education but my second year back in the classroom, teaching STEM full-time to 610 4th and 5th graders at Independence Elementary in Yukon, Oklahoma. Our STEM program is very unique, since it’s in the “specials “rotation for all students that also includes PE, Music and Art. This is the 4th year of the STEM program in Yukon Public Schools. As we’re about to wind down our school year, I thought it would be good to reflect and share about the reasons I love teaching elementary STEM in YPS.

Augmented reality lessons | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it

Augmented reality is an enhanced media experience in an environment for a user. There are multiple types of experiences. These computer generated environments let you hear music or sounds, watch videos, move and scale a 3D model, or place you in a scene that can be anywhere. All of these possibilities are interactive and require the user to trigger the possible experience.

Little Story Creator - A Free App for Creating Multimedia Stories - iPad Apps for School | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Little Story Creator (not to be confused with the similar sounding Little Story Maker) is a free iPad app that students can use to create multimedia stories on their iPads. The app was designed with students in mind and is therefore rather easy to use. On the app students can create multiple page stories. On each page of their stories students can add images and videos, type text, draw, and apply digital stickers. Students can also record audio on each page to narrate their stories.

Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
BIE’s Essential Project Design Elements contain two new items, both of which are familiar to those who know PBL. One is “authenticity,” which has to do with how real-world the project is. The other is “reflection,” which we have previously coupled with “revision” but now stands on its own; students should reflect on what they’re learning, how they’re learning, and what they have accomplished in a project.
